My methodology is based on engaging, real life topics which encourage students to speak and express themselves.
Kindness, care, acceptance and respect are essential, as the student´s comfortability will allow them to feel safe and relaxed to speak.
Communicative approach is the main aim, as I understand a language as a means of communication, connection, link with another culture, and not as a perfect tool to be used. Obviously, perfection will be happening as we practise and practise regularly and in a determined and enthusiastic way.
My sources for discussions are varied and you will be working with different people in pairs and small groups. Thus we avoid boredom, apathy and monotony. Five clubs in five weeks.
The role of the student is always active. Students get the instructions clearly in time before spending an hour talking, discussing and commenting topics.
Students have access to feedback constantly.
Sense of humour is crucial to learn. Our brain relaxes, opens up and absorbs naturally the language. Moreover, it brings an atmosphere of trust and peacefulness.
