This is an example of a one-hour first lesson.

The content may change thereafter, depending on the individual needs of the student and how quickly they are working through the materials. 

It is aimed at students who are lower, middle or higher intermediate level. 

General Lesson: 

  • 5 mins: Introductory warm up. 

  • 10 mins: Pronunciation. This concentrates on the most problematic areas for the student and depends upon their native language. Common areas of study would be a focus on "ed", "th" and the use of "h".  

  • 10 mins: Reading aloud. This looks at how the student runs their words together, their pronunciation issues and their use of word stress and syllables, etc. 

  • During reading, I would ask the student to write down the vocabulary they do not know and address this during the lesson. This might also lead to some discussion around synonyms as well as homework on these. 

  • 15 mins: The “th” or “ed” sounds.  I work through and show students how they should be using their mouth, teeth and tongue to produce the correct sounds. The learning outcomes are for them to test their ability, get them to think about the words and also to research the correct pronunciation using the given rules. 

  • 10 mins: Phrasal Verbs and Idioms. Students read out an exercise and dialogue. I would teach them the meaning of the phrasal verbs and how they are used.  A phrasal verb exercise would follow and I would also give them additional phrasal verbs and idioms as homework.

  • 10 mins: Conversation practice. 

 

A note about Business English lessons

If the student requires specialist coaching in Business English, the lesson would be aimed at the learning outcomes which are of most benefit to the student.  Business English lessons include the correct language for emails and documents as well as business meetings, welcoming visitors and making travel arrangements. I also teach presentation skills and coaching in how to deliver training.

Other materials used may include the use of TedTalks, BBC podcasts and BreakingNewsEnglish.com

TEFL qualified to teach English as a second language. I have PTTLS qualification at Distinction level. This qualifies me to teach anyone aged 16 or above. I have a Diploma in Qualifications Advice and Guidance.
