One of my students told me that she has been struggling to keep up with the lessons and that she wanted me to explain every single detail of the target sentences. As a poor excuse, I would say that it has not been easy to pay attention to the understanding of 14 students. But I tried to analyse why she found it so difficult to learn. There might be other students who feel the same way. It might be something I’m lacking.
For the other class, I give much information without using slides and I take time for each activity. I will also try to teach her class more slowly next time. Obviously, I need to prepare a reference of grammar explanation and make some activity materials. Like I felt in the last semester, this has two sides. I would like to help their learning as much as possible but it actually requires a huge commitment.
There are five more weeks until I finish all of the lessons. I will try my best because it would be wonderful if they found it interesting to learn the language!
