I teach based on a communicative method taught to me on a 140 hour Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) course. I use listening and reading comprehension often to introduce a topic then either identify and expand on the vocabulary used or identify a grammar structure within the text. I elicit students existing knowledge and understanding then teach with examples and careful categorisation of word families or grammatical features. I develop student confidence further by giving lots of practice in a variety of exercises and activities and end either with a developed and extended speaking or writing task. I set homework for further practice and provide regular revision opportunities.
