  • I'm an online tutor and I teach ESL to students in other countries. These are all great resources but most cater to teachers in classroom settings with groups of students. I would love to see more activities that I can do with my individual students as most of these wonderful activities will not work.

  • Hello,

    Thank you very much for your comments.

    Whilst it's true most of our resources are designed primarily for group classes, many of our resources are suitable to be adapted to a one-to-one setting. We have a specific section on one-to-one teaching for business that can be found here (and this may be adaptable for aspects of general English):

    http://www.onestopenglish.com/business/teaching-approaches/teaching-one-to-one

    Other tips for adapting group lessons for individual students:

    For presentation/research tasks, ask the student to do the research as homework then report/present to you on the next class.

    For debates, have the student take one side of the debate, research it at home then debate with you (who takes the other side) in the next lesson.

    For exercises, ask the student to complete the first exercise and then discuss their answers with you. Discuss any following exercises together.

    Further tips and activities can be found here:

    Some ideas for teaching children one-to-one can be found here:

    http://www.onestopenglish.com/methodology/teaching-tips/ask-the-experts/methodology-questions/methodology-teaching-young-children-one-to-one/155667.article

    Next month, we will also be publishing a brand-new series of news lessons, with articles taken from the Financial Times. These will all be fully adaptable for one-to-one teaching.

    Best wishes,

    The onestopenglish team

  • Hello,

  • I have noticed that the spelling of 'practise' and 'practice' is often used incorrectly. 's' is when it is used as a verb and 'c' when it is used as a noun. Please note!
