One-to-one lessons: Think of someone who….

Type: Teaching notes

A one-to-one lesson format by Lindsay Clandfield

Many published ELT materials are designed with the class in mind. The length of a coursebook “unit”, the instructions on the page (‘Check with a partner’, ‘Work in small groups’) and the communicative activities all presuppose a group of at least six or eight in most cases. In some cases, the instructions for a photocopiable activity read along the lines:

“Give each student a card from 1 to 15. If you have more than 15 students, make two sets…”

Many language teachers, working in small groups or one-to-one, just laugh out loud at this.
