I teach adult and teenage Spanish students who do not know one word of English. Please HELP!
My major was English until student teaching. I changed to Nursing. I was an RN 44 yrs. and just retired. Through a church school I was asked to teach ESL. I embraced the challenge as a positive way to still help people. I know the subject. I need to know methods, where to start, and how to get them talking. The first day I smiled and said,"good morning." they smiled and said, "buenos dias." I realized they were hoping I'd said good morning. lol. So I started with vocabulary using flash cards and subject/verb beginning a sentence. I think this web can help. Thank you for your input.---Brenda Duck
