Non-ESL teacher having to teach an ESL class

Unread postby mbpoarch » Sat Nov 12, 2011 6:46 pm

I teach in a very small private school that just "started" having an ESL class. Somehow, I was designated as the ESL teacher, when in reality, I am an English teacher. I have 3 Chinese high school students. The administrator in charge of the program is no longer the administrator, but he is still somehow in charge of the international student program. He is nowhere to be found, so I have no guidance whatsoever. I've been jumping around so far this year, trying to figure out how and what to teach them, and I'm still just as lost as ever! Please help!!

Hi, it will be easier for us to give you advice if you are a bit more specific. Eg what age are your students? which level? how many in the class? What are the objectives: speaking, reading, etc?
