What do I do?
Why Eikaiwa Rocks!
Survey the students
Students want to write down everything.
Ex. Every week ask what the students did over the weekend.
Pick a topic: cooking with students! Wonderful opportunity to share with them a dish from your home country, and have the students share a dish from theirs.
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!
