Different types of classes we are going to face in our teaching English language career. For example teaching beginners. We have to bear in mind the following when teaching them. Keep it simple, be visual rather than verbal, get them talking, use questioning and verbal repetition drills, use pairwork, be supportive and praise as often as possible, be supportive and praise as often as possible, respond to individual needs, be patient, play lots of interactive games and don't overcorrect.
Another type of class is one-to-one class. This one is popular among English language students due to individual attention. As teachers, when we meet the student for the first time, we need to do a needs analysis. Then, concentrate on their interests, cover all skills and vary our activities and approach.
Some good advice to put on practice regarding young learners class can be the following: constantly praise them , constant repetition, slow and simple speech, reference individuals, prepare lots of activities, keep it fun.
Regarding Business English classes, I was really afraid about this one. Because I thought that it would be a completely different world. I mean, a whole new vocabulary. But 90% of BE language is general English. Therefore, we should not be afraid to teach them. The typical process is: level test, needs analysis, group needs negotiation, plan out the syllabus, test and evaluate progress, post-course evaluation.
In a monolingual class one of the big advantages is that the students can help each other in their L1. However, it can be a disadvantage due to their less natural exposure to English. Regarding Multilingual classes, students have no common language. Therefore, there is more exposure to English. One disadvantage is that there is no common difficulties.
