I work at a school and have just taken on a new student – beginner, one-on-one lessons twice a week, 7-8:30 a.m. I dread it.
Do you have any advice on how to pace a 7 a.m. 90-minute lesson so that neither the student nor I are completely wiped out by the end?
He’s a bank manager, so I’m not sure if he’ll be up for classroom antics like charades or TPR activities.
Oh, and we don’t have a language in common, so verbal communication will be very, very limited – no chitchat, no jokes to loosen up the atmosphere.
I’d be very grateful for any advice!
