9:02 pm Fuertesun: yes #ELTChat
9:02 pm sandymillin: #eltchat I love teaching 121 – lots of chances for personalisation – much easier than in a bigger group class (have 3-4 121 ‘groups’)

9:03 pm Fuertesun: RT @Shaunwilden: I love it, but it seems to me newish teachers get quite freaked out by it #ELTChatvery intense
9:03 pm mmgrinberg: RT @naomishema: #eltchat – I’m a newbie who should have gone to bed… – hello ! > Hi, it’s midnight in Moscow, I’m quite sleepy, too
9:03 pm vickyloras: @Shaunwilden Half of my classes are 1-2-1 #ELTChat
9:03 pm sandymillin: @naomishema Don’t go to bed! Be stimulated by Doctor #eltchat πŸ˜‰ Welcome!
9:03 pm SueannaN: RT @Shaunwilden: I love it, but it seems to me newish teachers get quite freaked out by it #ELTChat
9:04 pm cerirhiannon: @Shaunwilden opposite experience – found it easier than groups to start with – till I got the hang of classroom m’ment w groups #eltchat
9:04 pm KarenInGreece: Yes, the majority of my classes are 121. Either at school or privately. #ELTchat
9:04 pm ESLMadrid: I teach 1 2 1 full time #eltchat
9:04 pm Marisa_C: RT @Shaunwilden: I love it, but it seems to me newish teachers get quite freaked out by it #ELTChat
9:04 pm Shaunwilden: @vladkaslniecko Am sure you’ll be great at it , it’s just like a class but with more room to meet the sts needs πŸ™‚ #ELTChat
9:04 pm naomishema: I use a lot of vocab games for one on one. #eltchat
9:04 pm BethCagnol: I did 121 for four years straight. It can be very tiring, actually. #ELTCHAT
9:04 pm sandymillin: RT @cerirhiannon: found it easier than groups to start with – till I got the hang of classroom m’ment w groups #eltchat <same here
9:04 pm JasonTRoberts: taught 121 for a couple of years while living in Korea. Enjoyed it but was sometimes more demanding than a class full of students #eltchat
9:04 pm Marisa_C: And some teachers treat 1-2-1 as if it was a private lecture trip with no need for proper preparation or planning #ELTchat
9:04 pm Fuertesun: @bethcagnol yes I agree very tirig #ELTCHAT
9:04 pm theteacherjames: #eltchat I started as a 121 teacher, it’s a great way to learn.
9:05 pm cerirhiannon: RT @Shaunwilden: like a class but with more room to meet the sts needs πŸ™‚ #ELTChat > but sometimes without the same energy?
9:05 pm SueannaN: RT @Marisa_C: And some teachers treat 1-2-1 as if it was a private lecture trip with no need for proper preparation or planning #ELTchat
9:05 pm vladkaslniecko: @Shaunwilden thanks for support :-)) actually i look forward to it #ELTCHAT
9:05 pm Fuertesun: @cerirhiannon yes energy can be a problem #ELTChat
9:05 pm cerirhiannon: RT @theteacherjames: #eltchat I started as a 121 teacher, it’s a great way to learn. > agree, I think there’s less pressure for a new T
9:05 pm mmgrinberg: 121 is maybe the largest part of elt market in Russia – and most of the newbies start from 121 #eltchat
9:05 pm vickyloras: A fantastic book on teaching 1-2-1 “Learning One-To-One” by Ingrid Wisniewska, Cambridge Handbooks for Teachers #ELTChat
9:05 pm ShellTerrell: RT @Marisa_C: And some teachers treat 1-2-1 as if it was a private lecture trip with no need for proper preparation or planning #ELTchat
9:05 pm SueannaN: it can be difficult if you are not on the same wavelength. Important to build rapport with student #ELTchat
9:05 pm BethCagnol: Can we use American English and say one-on-one instead of 1-2-1 during this #ELTCHAT or will that make most of you just giggle? πŸ˜‰
9:05 pm cerirhiannon: RT @Fuertesun: @cerirhiannon yes energy can be a problem #ELTChat > and sometimes variety of focus / interaction as well
9:05 pm Shaunwilden: @cerirhiannon My energy is always the same come class or 121 can’t help being hyperactive πŸ˜‰ #ELTChat
9:06 pm mmgrinberg: RT @vickyloras: A fantastic book on teaching 1-2-1 “Learning One-To-One” by Ingrid Wisniewska, Cambridge Handbooks for Teachers #ELTChat
9:06 pm sandymillin: RT @SueannaN: it can be difficult if you are not on the same wavelength. Important to build rapport with student #ELTchat

9:06 pm cioccas: RT @vickyloras: A fantastic book on teaching 1-2-1 “Learning One-To-One” by Ingrid Wisniewska, Cambridge Handbooks for Teachers #ELTChat
9:06 pm Fuertesun: Ss can control the direction of the class #eltchat very S centred
9:06 pm cerirhiannon: RT @Shaunwilden: @cerirhiannon My energy is always the same – can’t help being hyperactive πŸ˜‰ #ELTChat > not T energy – S energy πŸ˜‰
9:06 pm sandymillin: @bethcagnol But 121 so much faster πŸ˜‰ (you can say whatever you like though!) #ELTCHAT
9:06 pm cioccas: RT @Shaunwilden: @cerirhiannon My energy is always the same come class or 121 can’t help being hyperactive πŸ˜‰ #ELTChat < Me too!
9:06 pm ESLMadrid: One of my biggest challenge is getting the students to learn in their own time as well (121) #eltchat
9:06 pm vickyloras: One of the benefits is that the student has all your attention,you can tailor the lesson to their individual needs #ELTChat
9:06 pm ShellTerrell: After my initial fear I really began to explore the possibilities of 1:1! I love integrating technology into the lessons #Eltchat
9:06 pm mmgrinberg: 121 is only faster if it’s materials-driven #eltchat
9:07 pm ShellTerrell: RT @vickyloras: One of the benefits is that the student has all your attention,you can tailor the lesson to their individual needs #ELTChat
9:07 pm cioccas: RT @Fuertesun: Ss can control the direction of the class #eltchat very S centred < The ultimate in S centred learning!
9:07 pm cerirhiannon: RT @Fuertesun: Ss can control the direction of the class #eltchat very S centred > depends on T tho – & s- some 121 Ss can be v T-dependent
9:07 pm vladkaslniecko: RT @vickyloras: One of the benefits is that the student has all your attention,you can tailor the lesson to their individual needs #ELTChat
9:07 pm Fuertesun: RT @vickyloras: One of the benefits is that the student has all your attention,you can tailor the lesson to their individ nds #ELTChat agree
9:07 pm ShellTerrell: @vickyloras That is so true! #eltchat
9:07 pm Shaunwilden: @cerirhiannon I know but if i invest my energy then it rubs off on the sts πŸ™‚ #ELTChat
9:07 pm vickyloras: RT @SueAnnan it can be difficult if you are not on the same wavelength. Important to build rapport with student #ELTchat
9:07 pm Marisa_C: So 1-2-1 doesn’t just mean darting from unit to unit in a coursebook – it needs to be planned like a proper course! #ELTchat
9:07 pm sandymillin: #eltchat Think 121 classes are make or break – seem to be great or rubbish depending on SS engagement…rapport increases great lessons
9:07 pm ELTmethods: Problem of 121: Lack of different speakers. Should be compensated by other media and accents #eltchat
9:07 pm Fuertesun: @cerirhiannon oh yes swings both ways spoon feedin too #eltchat
9:07 pm ShellTerrell: RT @vickyloras: RT @SueAnnan it can be difficult if you are not on the same wavelength. Important to build rapport with student #ELTchat
9:07 pm KarenInGreece: @SueAnnan Yes, building a rapport is vital in 121. It can make or break the class #ELTchat
9:08 pm BethCagnol: @ShellTerrell I like how tech can be condensed to just a smart phone during 121 classes. #ELTCHAT
9:08 pm cerirhiannon: RT @Shaunwilden: @cerirhiannon Ibut if i invest my energy then it rubs off on the sts πŸ™‚ #ELTChat > agree, I love 121 don’t get me wrong!
9:08 pm Marisa_C: RT @bethcagnol: @ShellTerrell I like how tech can be condensed to just a smart phone during 121 classes. #ELTCHAT
9:08 pm ShellTerrell: Different objectives for a 1:1 dictate whether a coursebook is the best option. It isn’t always the best option #eltchat
9:08 pm Fuertesun: RT @KarenInGreece: @SueAnnan Yes, building a rapport is vital in 121. It can make or break the class #ELTchat
9:08 pm cioccas: @Marisa_C: Yes planned, but also open to change direction depending on S need #ELTchat
9:08 pm adricarv: + : The teacher can focus on things that are particularly relevant to the student #ELTchat
9:08 pm theteacherjames: #eltchat The greatest benefit is how close you can get to the student and understand their needs. Made some great friends from it too!
9:08 pm Shaunwilden: @cerirhiannon I wasnt’t just that some teachers feel that low energy is bad but all sts need time to think and reflect #ELTChat
9:08 pm BethCagnol: RT @Marisa_C: So 1-2-1 doesn’t just mean darting from unit to unit in a coursebook – it needs to be planned like a proper course! #ELTchat
9:08 pm ShellTerrell: RT @theteacherjames: #eltchat The greatest benefit is how close you can get to the student and understand their needs. Made some great friends from it too!
9:08 pm sandymillin: @cerirhiannon @Fuertesun Some SS can be T-dependent, but w. training can be weaned off -had this experience w. SS – took 18 months! #eltchat
9:08 pm ShellTerrell: Me too! RT @bethcagnol: I like how tech can be condensed to just a smart phone during 121 classes. #ELTCHAT

9:09 pm Eurominuteman: #eltchat YER KIDDING > A fantastic book on teaching 1-2-1 “Learning One-To-One” ?? Thats LEARNING 1-2-1, NOT TEACHING 1-2-1
9:09 pm annabooklover: RT @ELTmethods: Problem of 121: Lack of different speakers. Should be compensated by other media and accents #eltchat
9:09 pm ShellTerrell: @bethcagnol Only 1 brave student though for this! LOL! #eltchat
9:09 pm Fuertesun: @sandymillin I’ve had one one mine for 5 yrs now he sits with his iphone #eltchat
9:09 pm Marisa_C: Shall we talk about steps in the process and best practices? #ELTchat
9:09 pm mmgrinberg: It’s more difficult and yet it’s crucial to minimize ttt #eltchat
9:09 pm BethCagnol: @ShellTerrell Agreed on the coursebook. Sts need to bring in their own stuff. #ELTCHAT
9:09 pm Shaunwilden: RT @Marisa_C: Shall we talk about steps in the process and best practices? #ELTchat
9:09 pm Fuertesun: RT @Marisa_C: Shall we talk about steps in the process and best practices? #ELTchat
9:09 pm ShellTerrell: How do you keep teacher talk time to a minimum? #Eltchat
9:09 pm cerirhiannon: RT @Shaunwilden: all sts need time to think and reflect #ELTChat > totally – and it’s sth ss can get in groups or 121
9:09 pm theteacherjames: @cioccas @Fuertesun I think 121 can be more T centred, you have to get more involved. #eltchat
9:10 pm sandymillin: @Fuertesun Ignoring you or working with you? I stopped worrying wn my SS answers phone (3yrs w/him) – know he will think about it #eltchat
9:10 pm ESLMadrid: I think is all about being creative #eltchat my classes are all diff.
9:10 pm Marisa_C: RT @ShellTerrell: How do you keep teacher talk time to a minimum? #Eltchat > scotch tape works !!! πŸ˜€
9:10 pm BethCagnol: Achoo!!!! Ok. Gotta get some sleep. Bonne nuit mes amis! #ELTCHAT
9:10 pm Fuertesun: @theteacherjames yes true but Ss get to dircet and choose content more than in grp #eltchat
9:10 pm mmgrinberg: T centeredness is not a very appropriate concept when talking 121 I should say #eltchat
9:10 pm ShellTerrell: @Marisa_C LOL! #Eltchat
9:10 pm naomishema: games add spice to the lesson but you need to show the kid how the “playing field” is leveled. #eltchat
9:10 pm Shaunwilden: @ShellTerrell Isn’t one of the differences that communication is more real so TTT is bound to be higher? #ELTChat
9:10 pm ShellTerrell: RT @mmgrinberg: T centeredness is not a very appropriate concept when talking 121 I should say #eltchat
9:11 pm KarenInGreece: I think it’s best to start first lesson with lots of GTKY, needs analysis. Talk to sts about their expectations/wants/needs #eltchat
9:11 pm ShellTerrell: RT @ESLMadrid: I think is all about being creative #eltchat my classes are all diff.
9:11 pm ShellTerrell: RT @Marisa_C: Shall we talk about steps in the process and best practices? #ELTchat
9:11 pm Marisa_C: @Shaunwilden @ShellTerrell #ELTChat Sure – a higher than T to class TTT ratio
9:11 pm ShellTerrell: Agree! RT @mmgrinberg: It’s more difficult and yet it’s crucial to minimize ttt #eltchat
9:11 pm vladkaslniecko: RT @ESLMadrid: I think is all about being creative #eltchat my classes are all diff.
9:11 pm cioccas: RT @KarenInGreece: I think it’s best to start first lesson with lots of GTKY, needs analysis. Talk to sts about their expectations/wants/needs #eltchat
9:11 pm ColinTGraham: I used to teach BSL to some of my students, does that count? RT @ShellTerrell: How do you keep teacher talk time to a minimum? #Eltchat
9:11 pm mmgrinberg: You can also start first lesson with a question mark #eltchat
9:11 pm SueannaN: RT @ESLMadrid: I think is all about being creative #eltchat my classes are all diff.
9:11 pm Fuertesun: @sandymillin sorry meant that he’s now a much more ind learner using his i phone out of class to watch stuff in eng #eltchat
9:12 pm JasonTRoberts: @ShellTerrell I often had my students teach me something about their culture. My older students loved playing teacher. #eltchat
9:12 pm ShellTerrell: agree! RT @KarenInGreece: Yes, building a rapport is vital in 121. It can make or break the class #ELTchat
9:12 pm Fuertesun: RT @Shaunwilden: @ShellTerrell Isn’t one of the differences that communication is more real so TTT is bound to be higher? #ELTChat
9:12 pm sandymillin: @Fuertesun Right. My SS has started doing homework, writing emails, watching films, texting his daughter -long road, but worth it! #eltchat
9:12 pm Marisa_C: RT @ShellTerrell: agree! RT @KarenInGreece: Yes, building a rapport is vital in 121. It can make or break the class #ELTchat
9:12 pm Marisa_C: RT @annabooklover: I find that 1-2-1 classes are very emotional too! Especially with teenagers support is big part of the class. #eltchat
9:12 pm Shaunwilden: For me 1st step find their needs, wants & make sure those meet the HR depart if it 121in company, everyone must b on same page #ELTChat
9:12 pm mmgrinberg: How do you motivate them to do homework and increase contact w English #eltchat ?
9:13 pm toulasklavou: @KarenInGreece Absolutely!Needs analysis will be the basis of course design which is adjustable to S’ s later perfromance #eltchat
9:13 pm vladkaslniecko: RT @ShellTerrell: agree! RT @KarenInGreece: Yes, building a rapport is vital in 121. It can make or break the class #ELTchat
9:13 pm cerirhiannon: 121s can be so different depending on age, focus, specialist or general #eltchat
9:13 pm cioccas: Re TTT, I find the silences are easier to manage in 121 to allow processing by S #eltchat
9:13 pm sandymillin: #eltchat Getting the student to teach you sth v. empowering – my SS explained baseball after I explained cricket (he wanted to know!)
9:13 pm theteacherjames: @Fuertesun #eltchat I actually found it easier to let students choose content in groups – they can choose for each other.
9:13 pm KarenInGreece: TTT can be higher… but you have to have good rapport and be patient (esp with teens). Or it can be hard to get them to talk! #eltchat
9:13 pm mmgrinberg: #eltchat Getting the s to teach you is gr8, agreed. Examples?
9:13 pm theteacherjames: RT @Shaunwilden: @ShellTerrell Isn’t one of the differences that communication is more real so TTT is bound to be higher? #ELTChat
9:13 pm Marisa_C: Please keep your tweets short – help the summary writer who is goint to do this one!!! #ELTchat – if she remem? (cont)Β http://deck.ly/~HOJgi
9:13 pm ShellTerrell: @Shaunwilden At 1st I had trouble with high TTT in my 1:1 It’s become a lot better thru tech & recording then reviewing the lessons #Eltchat
9:13 pm cerirhiannon: RT @mmgrinberg: How do you motivate them to do homework … #eltchat ? > easier 121 ‘cos can always pay lots of attention to any work done
9:14 pm Marisa_C: yikes #ELTchat
9:14 pm vickyloras: @mmgrinberg They know in the next lesson they will have to answer questions on what we did last time,so they shd do hwk to recycle #ELTChat
9:14 pm Fuertesun: @sandymillin my one to onesx explain loads of thing to me sailing, chemistry and cancer markers to name but afew #eltchat
9:14 pm cerirhiannon: @Marisa_C no probs, I remember πŸ˜‰ #eltchat
9:14 pm KarenInGreece: @toulasklavou Yes and the best thing is that you can constantly adjust the course as you go and needs change. #eltchat
9:14 pm ShellTerrell: Gr8 idea! RT @JasonTRoberts: often had my students teach me something about their culture. My older students loved playing teacher #eltchat
9:14 pm mmgrinberg: @cerirhiannon But it’s more difficult if they are business executives. #eltchat
9:14 pm ColinTGraham: @Marisa_C Erm! It’s a good idea to put the #ELTchat at the beginning of extra long tweets too!
9:14 pm vickyloras: The book I mentioned is called Learning One-to-One but it explores teaching methods,plus the teacher learns alongside the student #ELTChat
9:15 pm theteacherjames: #eltchat It’s difficult to to minimise TTT and build rapport at the same time.
9:15 pm SueannaN: RT @mmgrinberg: @cerirhiannon But it’s more difficult if they are business executives. #eltchat Why?

9:15 pm ShellTerrell: Gr8 pt! RT @Shaunwilden: Then set a clear goal so course has focus so the lesson arent always ‘let’s just talk today’ #ELTChat
9:15 pm annabooklover: Finding what makes students click (sports/music/cinema…) is crucial in 1-2-1. #eltchat
9:15 pm cerirhiannon: find out what makes them tick, what tech they use outside class, get them to bring stuff in – documents, photos, anything #eltchat
9:15 pm cioccas: RT @ShellTerrell: Gr8 pt! RT @Shaunwilden: Then set a clear goal so course has focus so the lesson arent always ‘let’s just talk today’ #ELTChat

9:15 pm Marisa_C: @cerirhiannon So you are talking about a proper language, knowledge, skills, tech skills and needs analysis #eltchat
9:16 pm theteacherjames: RT @vickyloras: The book I mentioned is called Learning One-to-One but it explores teaching methods,plus the teacher learns alongside the student #ELTChat
9:16 pm Shaunwilden: RT @sandymillin: @Fuertesun The amount you can learn from 121 SS is amazing! #ELTChat – couldnt agree more πŸ™‚

9:16 pm SueannaN: RT @mmgrinberg: @SueAnnan It’s quite difficult to squeeze hwk into their schedules #eltchatdepends on sts motivation
9:16 pm cerirhiannon: RT @mmgrinberg: @SueAnnan It’s quite difficult to squeeze hwk into their schedules #eltchat > use email, use text msgs, set 5 min tasks
9:16 pm cioccas: @Marisa_C @cerirhiannon I think the analysis is ongoing, changing all the time #ELTchat
9:16 pm ShellTerrell: RT @AnneSinclair1: My teen is my worst 121 student,unmotivated, can’t retain vocab. Any ideas? #eltchat

9:17 pm KarenInGreece: 121 can be demanding for both of you, so find balance in lesson between talking and quiet time, speaking and writing etc #eltchat
9:17 pm JasonTRoberts: #ELTchat For my business exec. I often played many roles. Interviewer, buyer, co-worker.took a little research but the students enjoyed it
9:17 pm Shaunwilden: RT @KarenInGreece: 121 can be demanding for both of you, so find balance in lesson between talking and quiet time, speaking and writing etc #eltchat
9:17 pm ShellTerrell: @AnneSinclair1 Have you seen this site English Attack! Might be helpful w teen topicshttp://bit.ly/hWoGP0 #eltchat
