Fall is settling into winter, and I am settling into life in Gangnam.
Everything is different: I’ve moved from suburban to super-urban, from teaching babies to their parents, from a small private school to a corporate academy.
I’m enjoying things so far. Teaching adults has its own challenges, but it can be a lot of fun. For example, on Saturday, a student and I built our perfect boyfriends. It was relevant to the lesson, I swear!
We agreed about a lot of things, too.
I found a fun lesson on Dave’s ESL Cafe that helped the students use the imperative form. One student is the “director” and the other is the “artist”. The director has to instruct the artist how to draw a simple object, without using relevant vocabulary (for example, if the object is a flower, the director cannot tell the artist to draw leaves). Oh, and the artist is blindfolded, just to make things a little more fun.
The students really enjoyed the activity, there were a lot of laughs! And some confusing drawings. I believe the one below was supposed to be a cat.
Not too bad!
