What is your approach to teaching esl to children (7 to 10 years old)? I know that we must use games and songs, because we need to keep them motivated. But what else?
Do you teach writing (and reading, of course) or only practice listening and speaking? This is the main thing I would like to know.
Like teaching colors: blue, green, etc. Do you show them how to write these words?
PS: if you do this, it's better to pronounce them before write them, otherwise they will associate the word with the Portuguese sounds and make it hard for them to pronounce it correctly.
Could you suggest vocabulary other than colors, fruits, family members and animals?
Do you teach only vocabulary?
