Book Intro

This book comes with three lessons that cover English conversation and discussion for elementary levels. This book will work with what skills the student has and improved their vocabulary and confidence.

All lessons have been taught in South Korean schools with Elementary, Middle, High, Adults and academies (hagwons).

The lessons that follow can be adapted to run from 30 to 90 minutes. They often start with about 5-10 minutes of free talking. This can cover how the students are, what they have been doing or plan to do, as well as contributions from the teacher.

The structure of the lessons is modular, with clear and obvious steps to take. Everything starts with the teacher’s preparation work. Depending on the students’ ability, topics might need a quick worksheet or short classroom activity at the start of the lesson, and you will need to set aside time to devise this.
