    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We had a good class back after a few weeks off! Just 2 learners but lots of good practice. After helping them with a short survey they needed to take for work, we delved into a new topic; Fears & Phobias. We used dictation as an intro and then brainstormed the most common fears people have. We then used images to explore those and talked about what we are afraid of. We’ll continue this topic next week :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Just 1 learner but he hadn’t been to the last few classes so I was happy to have him back! He was happy to be back too- he said he couldn’t come to class the last few weeks because he was working so much overtime -which has been the case for many learners lately :(
    We talked about our holidays and then he needed help filling out a survey so we did that for the majority of our time together.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We continued with the World Religions topic. First reviewed a bit and then worked with some new material delving deeper into the differences of the main religions. So fascinating! We ended with a holiday themed memory game which was a fun way to end the class and then fall term! We will return on 1/15.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Only 1 person came and she came quite late so we didn’t have much of a ‘class’, just some conversation about work and how busy she has been doing over time. We also talked about the holidays and that’s about it!

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): I think this was the first time ever that only 1 learner came to this session (usually there are at least 2). Alas, it was great practice for her! Two of the other ‘regulars’ were working overtime and one was on vacation. The other doesn’t come during the winter months as she doesn’t like to drive in the dark. Regardless, the learner that did come is one of the lower levels of the bunch but loves to talk so that’s what she did pretty much the whole hour and a half (with some structured guidance of course ;) and I think she loved all the attention so I’m cool with that :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Unfortunately no learners came to class. I’m not too worried given the time of year…also the company is very short staffed right now, which means many employees are working over time and therefore may not have the English class (before their shift) at the top if their list. We’ll see what happens next week and then after that we have a few weeks off for the holidays.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Just 2 learners today but it was actually really good for them to get some more focused attention as they are the lowest of the group. They were both pretty chatty so we did have a bit of casual conversation to start off which was great! I let them talk without error correction for a bit and then started to add it in as we went on. We talked about Thanksgiving and Black Friday and did a listening/cloze activity about the history of BF. They loved learning about that :) For the last portion of class, we practiced language around Religion. I have been wanting to explore this topic with this group for quite some time now and I’m glad I finally got to it- I’m learning, too! We didn’t get too far, just did a dictation to start off/introduce the topic and then we learned the names of the 5 most widely practiced Religions of the world. They were very open to sharing their religious view, which I figured would be the case, their culture is pretty open, much more than ours. Looking forward to delving further in next week with the rest of the group too.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): I didn’t have a lot of time to prepare so I sort of ‘winged it’ a bit, but overall pretty good class. I started off talking about Liz Gilbert since I had plans to meet her in person (!!!!!) that evening and see her speak at a women’s empowerment series, which was amazing by the way ;) So, they learned about my favorite author and some said they would watch Eat, pray, love this week. Would be so cool if they did! We then reviewed our tag questions from last week and ended with a board game I found online about famous landmarks around the world and other themes related to the topic we’ve been exploring the last few weeks. It was ok, it would have been better if I had prepared more but still seemed like they enjoyed it and it was good language practice too, of course :)

We talked about the events his family will be vending at during the holiday season and also the general culture here of buy/support local small businesses. We laughed a lot too :)

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Pretty average class- I think I was pretty distracted by the feelings left from the previous class but all in all it went well. We started by practicing more tag questions and spent a good amount of time on that as they really enjoy this grammar point. And they realize how often we use them! We then reviewed a few things from last week including ‘what makes up a culture’ and superstitions. We then learned (dictation) about some customs/beliefs in other countries. We’ll pick up here next week and spend 2 more weeks with this theme. After Thanksgiving break, we’ll have 3 weeks until a longer winter break.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): This was a pretty special class. It was just one learner, a middle aged man from Colombia. He is definitely struggling being here in the US and we’ve talked about his situation a few times. Well, to the best of our ability with the language barrier. My Spanish is ok, but he is about high beginner so we get stuck at times. I try to not use Spanish with him as I want to encourage him to practice English but of course, we go there at times. Yesterday was pretty emotional, it’s really hard on him and family who have been forced to leave their home. I help my composure but it was not easy. I let him talk and he wrote many things down but it was mainly casual conversation.
