A pre-A1 lesson

How does a teacher prepare his lessons? He studies, ponders, create, analyse and apply. After it sometimes he will smile happily and other times he will cry. – Sue A. Viana

On this post today I wanted to share a lesson prepared for a pre-A1 student. The theme of the lesson was introductions and greetings. The teaching target was pronunciation and spelling of names, forms of greetings, introducing oneself and the alphabet. I am not sharing all the lessons, just the first slides of some. It will let you know what a first pre-A1 (7-14 years old) class with me may be like.

These are photos of some animated slides. They originally have audio and video.

The names I picked from Pre A1 starters test material shared by Cambridge assessment English
The video used here is the one about introductions and greetings from English Singsing and I use it for kids up to 10 years old.

That is it. Thank you for sharing this space with me. Readers are also writers. Let me know what you think and how you would make it better.
