I'm currently teaching in an academy and but I also teach private classes in Spain. My problem is this, I have a lot of students who start classes but then don't return. The other day I had a first class with a couple in which I gave them a level test and talked to them to assess what they know and why they want to learn English. They emailed me back saying they were bored and didn't want to continue classes even after I explained that that wasn't normally how classes would be. I'm new at this (although I have a degree in English and the TEFL Certificate) and need some suggestions. How can I make my classes more fun so I don't lose students and what kind of activities can be done with beginner students who refuse to learn grammar or do any exercises.
Thanks in advance!
