  • Where you are GOING is more important than where you are starting!\nLanguage skills must be taught systematically\nRecycle grammar\nKeep in mind: are you meeting the expectations of the students, bosses, parents?\nFor our projects we are creating a fun format for learning\n
  • You can use the book material\nor simply use the grammar and language skill layout\n\nWith adults I recommend the later then you don’t need to buy the book to repeat the project.\nIt is substantially more work.\n
  • Fewer units should equal deeper teaching\nMore units requires quicker teaching quicker = more shallow or more light\nThat is not good or bad\nDepth is dependent on students ability and your ability\n
