How to deal with native students in an EFL classroom #ELTchat on 22/02/2017
It happens that in countries such as Spain there are expat British/Irish/American students who attend to state schools and they have EFL lessons. Of course it’d be better if during that period they attended some other lesson, but sadly this doesn’t happen too often. So Some teachers make these students help them, as if they were assistants; others give them higher level materials, but usually they are not mature enough to cope with them…So, how can we cater for this diversity in a mixed ability group, with native students in it?
@Angelos_Bollas sent us this question asked by Sara Martin on Twitter – we talked about this last week and here are the key tweets since we did not find anyone to summarise the post.
Hope you enjoy this format 🙂
