Hi there, i am a qualified EFL/ESOL teacher and am used to working with advanced students, i want to start working with absolute beginners and to be honest i have no idea where to start, i need to know how to construct and plan a lesson for this level of students, can anyone point me in the right direction of any videos, books or website that may be of use.

For me the key is simplicity. Everything needs to be as simple as possible and then repeated. And repeated again.
I will spend more time on each element of the lesson than with advanced learners. I will give more examples, slow things down, and then get all the class to practice the language item. And then practice it again.
