    Hi there,

    My name is Chloe and I am just about to embark on a new job in Khazakstan. I will be working with three boys who have rather good English – I would place them at intermediate or possible upper ints. They are aged 6, 9, 12 and go to an English private school. I have been asked to prepare them all for boarding school in the UK and supplement their school curriculum.

    They will each have 1-2 hour lessons a day with me, individually. I feel like I need a book to follow – can anyone recommend a syllabus for this age group and level?

    Any help or direction or ideas warmly welcome.

    Chloe

    Dear Chloe

    Hello there. I would read with them, Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Harry Potter, all the CS Lewis books, Roald Dahl. Get them to think up questions to ask their brothers about things that just happened in the chapter and test each other to see how much they remember.

    When you find grammatical errors do drill games to work on them such as this one:

    The only problem with a textbook that I can see is it’ll be hard to find one that appeals to age 6 and 12 at the same time, but the classic story-tellers – they appeal to all ages.

    I’ve got a book of plays and skits that would be fun but the scripts are too easy and you would have to jazz them up with more complex language. You can find them on the plays page of my site, two demo videos are there so you could try those with the boys without having to get the plays book and see how they go down.


    Stories, plays and skits, games, songs for teaching English to kids in classes and one on one. http://www.teachingenglishgames.com
