I teach 2 classes for an hour each a week in a small buxiban. I used to split the material with the Chinese co-teacher, I taught reading and phonics, and she taught the rest.
The kids are 8-11 years old, have been learning English for around 6 months and are at the level where they can talk about what they like/want/have, brothers, sisters, and days of the week.
The boss has now said that I am to teach ONLY conversation, she wants to buy some books for this. She wants me to choose the material and I’m free to teach in anyway I see fit, which is good, but at this level I don’t really know of much outside of ‘Up and Away’ and ‘Let’s Go’. Both of which I don’t feel are particularly suitable for teaching just conversation for an hour at a time.
Can anyone recommend a book(s) for teaching 10 year olds conversation?
Thanks in advance!
