    Of course it depends on the level, B. But the best thing to do for one or a group is to NOT teach. What you want to do is provide situations where students can use language in as natural a context as possible.

    Basically, the same way I teach a group but as there is no group, I make up fictitious people so that students can practice as if there were real people there.

    Riverkid,

    Could you please give me examples of the situations you make? And how you do it.

    Copy pictures of a number of different people, some singles to represent he and she and some "couples" to represent 'they'.

    The you can create, through the use of imagination different scenarios. If the practice is,

    "What do you have?"

    "I have a pencil",

    then by placing an item with the picture we can expand to,

    "What does he/she do they have?"

    Obviously a simple lesson, but these can be increasingly expanded to include more complicated language and language structure.

    Polite questions and requests:

    Will
    Can
    Could you pass this to [name]
    Would

    I wonder if you could ...

    I was wondering if you could ...

    Counterfactuals

    If [I/she/he] were [name, ...

    where would S live?

    what nationality would S be?

    would S be married?

    would S have kids?

    If [I/he/she/they] had what [you/he/she they] have, what would [I/he/she/they] have?

    If I/he/she/they had taken //had been given the same thing that you took /were given, what would he/she/they/you have?

    As a teacher, you have to try to bring the world into the classroom. Imagination and role play can be a big part of it.

    When you practice language with context, [as rich a context as is possible] it drives the main purpose of the study, language, deeper into the brain.

    Re: one-on-one

    Youre right, thanks! I think I can do that in other subjects but I havent got any experience in English one-on-one yet. I do on-line teaching which is an absolutely different thing.
    I want to experience one-on-one teaching as well, and now Im gathering ideas and lessons so if I could ever get a chance, Id be ready.

    Do you know any sites that gives a comprehensive lesson plan?
