Pictures…Photos…Visuals…all so important in learning a language without translation…For the past year or so I have been using a picture or two in most of my lessons in order to get the students to speculate, speak about it, or strike up a conversation…It continues to work well for me and the students display instant interest evertime I open the book up…I have several photos printed from several cities and places around the world, but I have found that the ones of Japan suppliment “Entertaining a Foreigner” like a charm…Go here, search “Japan,” print away, and I promise you won’t be sorry: www.trekearth.com
As a new franchisee, I am very interested in learnign what other coaches enjoy doing. Until last week, I hadn’t yet done this lesson. After reading this post I tried it. WOW! What a fantastic lesson and your ideas on it work wonders. My students were chattering away! A very good lesson. Well chosen.
