A Taiwanese friend of mine has recently told me that her sisiter, who is blind, would like to take up private English lessons, and asked me if I would be interested in the job.
This seems a bit daunting to me, since I generally work with written material when I tutor privately (don’t we all!).
What would the challenges be? I mean, we sure aint gonna be working off the book. I’m thinking loads of conversation, reading (me, followed by Q&A), listening to conversational CDs, ‘watching’ movies and discussing after…
What are your suggestions and have you ever been in this situation? She has a beginner to upper-beginner English level, since she studied it at high school (was still sighted then)
