One-to-one lessons: Read and report

Level: Starter/beginner, Elementary, Pre-intermediate, Intermediate, Upper intermediate, Advanced Type: Teaching notes

A one-to-one lesson format by Lindsay Clandfield

The following lesson uses techniques that are common in ELT but that work quite well for a one-to-one situation, where the teacher can provide much more focused assistance on the learner’s understanding of a text and their language output. In addition, the reading stage of the lesson – albeit short – provides a momentary pause in the lesson for both teacher and learner. Such pauses are arguably more important in very small classes, where both parties often feel that they need to constantly be “on” or “active”, i.e. speaking.

This lesson uses a text which is appropriate for learners at an intermediate or higher level. To use the lesson format with a different text, see the notes at the end on how to make your own Read & Report lesson.

  • One tip to onestopenlish web programmers: put all the links to a subject in the same page, one below the other, and make each link open to a new page. This way we will be able to go back and forth the different topics much more easily. Once we finish reading a topic we can simply close the page and click on the next topic in the original page. Think about it.
