Warmer idea of the month
Jane has been teaching students in her home for more than 15 years. She lives in Hove and teaches all levels and all ages and is a specialist in General English, Business English, English for Teachers, Academic English, and Exam Preparation.
This is Jane's tip for warming up at the beginning of a lesson:
"I have to say that my lesson warmers vary enormously. My teaching is all one-to-one homestay and I usually create a bespoke course for each and every one of my students. I have had students at lower levels and have a whole bookcase full of wonderful materials (books, audio CD's, visuals, etc.) and often use, or adapt, Headway materials and grammars.
We very often start with a game connected to vocabulary learned the day before: crosswords, gap-filling or just a quick recap on the evening before or a chat about the many people my student may have met whilst here- I often invite friends round in the evening."
