First ESL Class

April 10th, 2011 by Maya Dougherty · No Comments · Uncategorized

Today we taught our first ESL class of the semester in Vermilion. We worked on talking about words that are used in location and direction, such as “above, below, towards, along,” etc. We did several different activities, such as passing a ball around the circle and telling people to “put the ball next to you. Pass the ball to the left,” and so on. We also worked on introductions, and played two truths and a lie. There were a few rough spots, mostly because the different people who showed up were at such different levels from each other, and we have not worked with them as a group before. At the end of class we decided that it would probably be best if we split off into a couple of different groups in the future, especially since there are three of us teaching, so that the people who are at different levels can be working on different things and no one falls behind.
