I would make a question to the Italki's tutors and teachers. How do you plan the development of your trial (30 minutes) session? And how about the regular ones?
Specifically I want to know what do you propose to your students as exercises and material? Do you use a Powerpoint or something else?
Hello Francesca :)
Well in my opinion the Trial Seasson is more for we know the strong point and weak of the student for the future lessons and we can also test them :)
In normal lessons we can: check the vocabulary, listenning music, read stories for kids or professional texts to practice the reading, do exercises, see profissional books to learn the language or just speak for practice the speech and some vocabulary, we can also help them with homework but don't do the work. All depend what student want or need :)
