Most effective classes involve a quick greeting, under a minute, a topic, and listening to students talk. This is the assessment phase of the lesson. What does that mean? It means that the teacher is listening to the student and identifying their needs. Sometimes we call it the “needs analysis” phase. During that time, we correct major or common errors. We also pause for pattern practice and occasionally rewind the conversation to make an exchange more natural. This also helps us work on the flow of the students’ back-and-forth. This is NOT free conversation time. It’s using the language with adaptive evaluation and assistance.

In classes like this, the students own the conversation. The classes have very high student talk time and reinforcement is strong. Additionally, these classes are also very easy to prepare. Choose a topic related to the students’ work or life and away you go.
