I am a student at NSU which is in Oklahoma. I have a girlfriend that is Japanese and her second langauge is English. She has many problems with remembering things let alone English. I am an English major and a native speaker and have enough knowledge of English and very little knowledge of Second Language Acquisition. The semester here is winding down quickly and I want to spend the one month break with her so I can help her with her English studies. She doesn't study that much and it is very hard to get her interested in it. I am not a teacher but one day I would like to be one. I want to help her but I have no idea what I can do. I have asked for help before from an ESL person on my campus but she is no longer in Oklahoma and all she sent me was a website of ESL stuff. I will appreciate any ideas or help with this please. Thanks!
