How can I make my English lessons more relevant to students?

By Dr Julian Northbrook

One of my clients asked how she can make her English classes more relevant to students.

She’s a school teacher in Hong Kong, as like many schools in Asia she has to use official textbooks… which are not always great.

Well, there are a couple of simple things you can do.

Here’s a video that discusses them in detail:

You see, it’s all about making things easy to visualise.

When students can imagine themselves in a context, it all becomes relevant and they can see themselves doing it — which in turn, raises motivation and makes the English they’re learning easier to remember.

But to this well, you have to describe a situation that’s actually going to be relevant to them and be of interest.

Make sense?

Great.
