I teach in an academy in Spain and I'm having trouble with my first year secondary school students. Firstly, I don't really know how I should be teaching them. What should 12-13 year olds be able to do/say in English? I'm in charge of speaking activities but many of them aren't interested in speaking English. They have a course book, but my colleagues in the academy don't follow it. Their level is quite low.
I'm getting quite desperate with this class. Can anyone help?
