Why Eikaiwa Rocks!
2. Using a set curriculum
Survey the students
Students want to write down everything.
Too much Japanese in class
Ex. Every week ask what the students did over the weekend.
Pick a topic:
Ex. Favorite café: what is it, where is it, what do you order there, why is it your favorite? Students can ask each other questions and respond.
Your students are there for all different reasons. But they all want to have fun and practice English. Make it fun for them and for you!
