Closing: After each session before you say goodbye, ask students to reflect on the lesson.

·   Instructor asks: What is one thing you liked about the lesson?

 ·   Ask each student to tell you 3 new English words they learned today.

o   Repeat the new words after the student says them. Then, repeat the new words with the student again so he/she practices and learns the correct pronunciation.

·   Ask: What is one question you still have about what you learned today?

Say goodbye to the students. Tell them you are looking forward to seeing them next time… Instructor says: Have a good day/afternoon… See you next time…
