Re: Where to begin when teaching a young learner?

Hello,

You said that the learner have some knowledge already.That is good because that won't be a challenge for you.Find out his weaknesses and concentrate on that.If he is weak in vocabulary/grammer,spend more time for that part.

Re: Handwriting competition

You just want to test their handwriting.So it doesn't matter what topic you give them.Ask them to write on their favorite topic with good handwriting.

Re: "My name is" or "My name's"?

While writing "My name is" is correct and it should be wriiten like that.It is a formal way of writing .
While saying,it is heard as "My name's",here "name" and "is" are compressed.If written,it becomes informal.

Re: "he's" vs. "his" And Similar Mistakes: How to Explain?

"he's" means "he is".Its is the short way of writing "he is".
Eg:-He is going to Los Angeles.
He's going to Los Angeles.

"his" means anything belonging to a person.
Eg:- She is his sister.
This is his book.
