In the student-based classes, we have been working in pairs or groups in order to get everyone participating. Working in groups allows students to work out any doubts they may have as well as understand the reasoning. We often play Jeopardy – where students break up into teams and answer questions related to a specific category or topic. Categories range from filling in the blank with the correct word, speaking, and forming questions.
In the teacher-based classes; we focus on speaking, listening, and comprehension. We oftentimes read news articles or watch talks such as TED Talks. After reading or listening to a talk, we discuss what we thought about the material.
