View topic - advice for teaching English - eigo no oshiekata no tetsudai
One of the things I need to prepare is a lesson for beginners to English. That subject is as broad as I am indecisive on what I want to cover. The lesson needs to be planned for a 30 minute class and I'll have to get a 5 minute demonstration. So I was wondering if anybody remembered what were their favorite parts about beginners' foreign language classes. If anyone attended an ESL, it would also be helpful to know what they thought was the best part of the beginning classes.

First outline the basics: I am, You/We/They are He/She/It is ~~ing. Then having them describe a photo is good, or have one student describe a picture and the others draw it to practice listening. Charades is also good. Get or make a pack of simple action cards and have them act things out, then ask "What am I doing?" And the other students guess: "Are you swimming?" "Are you playing baseball?" or what have you.

I think you should teach numbers up to five, and how to use ~ing, maybe also some greetings.
EDIT: Oh yeah, also we did this game, where the teacher had a bag filled with random objects, and the student had to choose one and answer a question about it.
