Teaching ideas for VolunteersVolunteer in Thailand2 400

Included on a flash drive are help and exercises I have prepared to complement the assistance you will be receiving to effectively assist the learners. These are only the exercises included in the programs you will be given and amount to about half of all the exercises. If you need more they will be given to you but that is highly unlikely.

Help for lesson planning

Your hour lesson should be broken up into quarters or something similar, with a different activity each quarter, to maintain interest because 60 minutes of your voice will send them to sleep.

In the folder on the flash drive Planning_of_lessons you have folders for each level, P3 to M3. The spreadsheet shows the time spent on each exercise used during the lesson that day. You will see that the totals are the number of minutes for the lesson, and that a total of four or five exercises are used each lesson. You can see the spreadsheet for M3 on the website.

Download the spreadsheet for the M3 Program.
