3. Finish Your Lesson

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 3-5 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.
