Experienced Interpreter and French Second language Teacher, former Secondary School Science Teacher

Methodology

First I try to determine, the student's motivation fro learning a second a language ( French).
For example ; school advancement or course requirements college or university level, work promotion, travel, culture for business owner two attract prospects and increase customer base; so that I can gear the material ,vocabulary and register of language to their specific needs.
When teaching a group or in a classroom setting i would prepare my lessons according to the ESA engage,study,activate as suggested in the Oxford Seminars TESOL/TEFL teacher training. To explain how a lesson should proceed I will elaborate; at the beginning of a new lesson we must ENGAGE the students through games, music,pictures, drams, stories;secondly we must STUDY the new vocabulary or grammar construction together with examples and tasks using the new concept or vocabulary and thirdly we ACTIVATE the new concept vocabulary so the students learn to use their new tools in communication with ease.
For individual or one-on -one tutoring I would choose age appropriate text/play ,poem or short story geared to the individual's target interest and competency level to read and study together ; stopping the narrative at intervals to discuss grammar structure, usage ;reading comprehension and vocabulary plus challenging and encouraging the student to use new skills examples as we move along.
In both instances group or individual I would take time to get feedback as to how the students are feeling and if they have any concerns or suggestions as how we could proceed more effectively.
