barbsaka 02:07 @CastanedaSusana What do you like best about 1-1? #eltchat #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:07 pace seems very important to me in a 121 situation. It can be a lot of attention on the student #eltchat

onetooneteacher 02:10 In the little written about 121 always an assumption the student is some kind of top executive other students are out there too #eltchat
chucksandy 02:10 I haven't done much 121 teaching in a long time but used to find it much more tiring than teaching a class.True for y'all too? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:10 @PublisherBoy Hmm interesting, I found that i did less (after initial first lesson nerves) as the sts took over more #eltchat
NATECLA 02:10 RT @Ilotimo: NEW POST: Skype in Classroom http://bit.ly/lrJyRC #skype #edtech #edchat #finnedchat #eduswe #eltchat #ukedchat #cpchat
theteacherjames 02:11 @chucksandy The opposite for me. No classroom management for a start. #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:11 @chucksandy It was too for me, especially when the student was nervous and ill-at-ease #eltchat
chucksandy 02:11 @onetooneteacher: what kinds of people do you usually get for 121? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:11 @onetooneteacher Very true, often just a student who wants to get on 'quicker'  #eltchat
BobK99 02:11 #eltchat Gawd is THAT the time. Catching up...
theteacherjames 02:11 @Shaunwilden Agreed. I do less prep for 121. More flexibility is one of the advantages. #eltchat

PublisherBoy 02:13 RT @CastanedaSusana: I use feedback sheet.... nice idea.   #eltchat
barbsaka 02:13 @yitzha_sarwono  Good point about using tools :)
teacherdude 02:13 @barbsaka I do that as well #eltchat
CastanedaSusana 02:13 I use feedback sheet I send by email to SS after each class, w new vocab in context and error correction. Ss love it! #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:13 @barbsaka not really,but having 1 student means u get to pour your all to her,so why not use tools that may be hard to do in class #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:13 General English, IELTS, Cambridge exams, bored housewives and house husbands, academic English and so on #eltchat
chucksandy 02:13 @theteacherjames: that's interesting. I just found the hour long interaction with another human to be pretty full on.  #eltchat
bethcagnol 02:13 @TOEFLzone @cecielt sorry I missed today's #ELTbootyShake Was out and about. But tomorrow works! Maybe we can get #ELTChat involved. ;-)
naomishema 02:13 RT @DaveDodgson: A Magpie Moment: Using readers - Rima's Day http://bit.ly/lPQ5kG #ELTchat
theteacherjames 02:14 @chucksandy I try to make it as laid back & conversational as possible (most of the time). Learning by stealth. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:14 @PublisherBoy Am not saying ppl shouldnt be more creative just wondering how #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:14 @barbsaka oh me too! I currently teaching 7 years old on phonics,reading,and basic grammar ^^ #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:14 @PublisherBoy Creative how? I'd often do the same things as I would in a class #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:14 RT @PublisherBoy: RT @CastanedaSusana: I use feedback sheet.... nice idea. #eltchat

Shaunwilden 02:15 @web2literacy And what do you think they are? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:15 @BobK99 Yes thats a G8 idea, used to work wonders with my 121s #eltchat
web2literacy 02:15 @onetooneteacher what about differences between online 121 and face-to-face 121? #eltchat
chucksandy 02:16 theteacherjames: I like that:  Learning by stealth. ^^ #eltchat
web2literacy 02:17 @onetooneteacher more accessible to students? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:17 RT @web2literacy:  I suppose many - tools, time, distance, feedback, eye2eye contact, loads of things #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:17 @chucksandy tiring?maybe cause you have all the time spent just for 1 student who can sometimes make the hour ticks slower #eltchat
naomishema 02:17 @Shaunwilden I'll be missing #eltchat this week -attending two day ETAI Jerusalem Conference! http://bit.ly/l4Dy0l Catch you all next week!
OUPELTGlobal 02:18 RT @CastanedaSusana: 1-1 involves more preparation, adjusting book, using realistic material, I use ExpressSeries OUP, gr8 material #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:18 @chucksandy Thanks. Just hope the student realises at some point, or they'll wonder what they're paying for! #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:18 RT @theteacherjames: @chucksandy I try to make it as laid back & conversational as possible (most of the time). Learning by stealth. #eltchat
chucksandy 02:18 @yitzha_sarwono: i remember one 121 Ss who was not the most interesting person in the world. The time just dragged  #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:18 Are 121 students different from students in a classroom? For me it was usually a question of time #eltchat
BobK99 02:18 RT @barbsaka: @CastanedaSusana What do you like...? #eltchat !Me too (love it). Time to follow their interests, and sense of achievement.1/2
CastanedaSusana 02:18 1-1 involves more preparation, adjusting book, using realistic material, I use ExpressSeries OUP, gr8 material #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:19 RT @onetooneteacher: @Shaunwilden apart from Peter Wilberg and Mark Powell who else do you think writes well on 121? #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:19 @Shaunwilden @PublisherBoy I think your creativity will emerge as you have only 1 to worry about so it's easier to cope #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:19 @onetooneteacher There is a lack of methodology boo s on the subject don't you think? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:19 @web2literacy Do you teach it? Have never done synchronous 121 as  lesson though helped teachers via skype #eltchat
PublisherBoy 02:19 RT @OUPELTGlobal: RT @CastanedaSusana: 1-1 involves more preparation, adjusting book, using realistic material, I use ExpressSeries OUP, gr8 material #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:20 RT @OUPELTGlobal Are 121 students different from students in a classroom? For me it was usually a question of time #eltchat >> true ^^
barbsaka 02:20 Seems that one of the best things about 1-1 is that you can really work from student interests (rather than balancing act w/class) #eltchat
BobK99 02:20 @barbsaka: @CastanedaSusana  #eltchat !+ time to spend nec time on correction, without worrying about holding others back
JonLine55 02:21 Yes.  You typically have buy-in  RT @OUPELTGlobal: Are 121 students different from students in a classroom? #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:21 @chucksandy oh I had that experience on preparing a girl who isn't interested at English at all to pass the national exam #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:21 @yitzha_sarwono true but i stimes felt my creativity hindered lesson ,Sts wanted 2 do X rather than my song &dance use of materials #eltchat

OUPELTGlobal 02:22 Many times I found 121 sts unrealistic, thinking they could learn everything in a year #eltchat
web2literacy 02:22 @Shaunwilden #eltchat  i do use plenty of online tools though like discussion forums and teaching becomes 121 in terms of messages to & fro
Shaunwilden 02:22 @onetooneteacher Agreed though theses days the blogsphere is always full of advise  #eltchat
chucksandy 02:23 google one to one teaching & most hits are for English teaching. Funny that other lang, music teachers, coaches etc don't turn up. #eltchat
Collaborative 02:23 #eltchat Why do kids always stampede out of the door after class?
Shaunwilden 02:23 RT @onetooneteacher: well it's true hoping my blog will address 121 in more depth too in the future and add to this #eltchat
CastanedaSusana 02:23 RT @barbsaka: Seems that one of the best things about 1-1 is that you can really work from student interests (rather than balancing act w/class) #eltchat
barbsaka 02:23 @onetooneteacher Don't forget to use the #eltchat tag so we can all see your comments :)
mmgrinberg 02:24 @Shaunwilden I would recommend the Bus Eng Teacher / Delta Pub, there's a lot applicable to 121 #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:24 @chrisjw133 @Shaunwilden here,the one who takes 121 is usually either lack in English or needs to achieve some goal #eltchat
PublisherBoy 02:24 Not for music teachers and coaches....RT @chucksandy:  Funny that other lang, music teachers, coaches etc don't turn up. #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:24 @Shaunwilden @onetooneteacher This is the most thorough description of 121 I've found. Very good book: http://amzn.to/nje7hU #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:24 @barbsaka exactly for me that's the key thing about 121 #eltchat thanks for tip too!
Shaunwilden 02:24 @web2literacy Then we get into the differences between synchronous an asynchronous teaching UI guess :-) #eltchat
BobK99 02:24 RT @OUPELTGlobal: Many times I found 121 sts unrealistic, thinking they could learn everything in a year #eltchat! Me too - deps on S tho
onetooneteacher 02:25 I think what the Dogme people talk about ties in very neatly with 121 teaching #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:25 RT @theteacherjames: @Shaunwilden @onetooneteacher This is the most thorough description of 121 I've found. Very good book: http://amzn.to/nje7hU #eltchat
barbsaka 02:25 @chucksandy I think music teachers just consider it teaching--seems like most lessons are 1-1. No? #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:25 @chrisjw133 @Shaunwilden when he is lack of motivation,121 would need more than just a good lesson plan,you'll have to motivate too #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:25 RT @barbsaka: 1 of the best things about 1-1 is that you can really work from student interests (rather than balancing act w/class) #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:25 @chucksandy haha was just doing that as you tweeted  - usual suspects e.g. onestop, BC, etc #eltchat
PinoyEduTecher 02:25 RT @ShellTerrell: Happy 4th of July – Celebrate Independence http://bit.ly/lrUxKv #esl #eltchat
web2literacy 02:26 #eltchat 121 often very expensive - is it money well spent from the learner's perspective? If so , why?
onetooneteacher 02:26 and 121 is the ultimate form of student-centred learning no? #eltchat - well it ought to be at least
theteacherjames 02:26 @OUPELTGlobal True, but that's pretty common across the board I think. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:26 took 25 minutes for the first mention of  dogme, darn I put my money on it being earlier :-) #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:26 I find learning to learn and learn autonomy strategies very important in 121. to help the student learn beyond the lesson #eltchat
chucksandy 02:26 @chucksandy I think music teachers just consider it teaching--seems like most lessons are 1-1. No? > i think that was my point :-) #eltchat
Collaborative 02:26 #eltchat Here they even have road railings to protect kids as they stampede out of school
chucksandy 02:26 quite a bit on one to one reading teaching tho.  #eltchat
web2literacy 02:27 @Shaunwilden yes, good point #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:27 @chrisjw133 @Shaunwilden and motivating can sometimes takes more than half session!lol. But the good part is you'll bond better too #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:27 RT @onetooneteacher: and 121 is the ultimate form of student-centred learning no? #eltchat - well it ought to be at least
PrettyButWise 02:27 what's today's topic ? I couldn't check the site :) #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:27 @Shaunwilden i think dogme has a lot to learn from 121 teaching ;-) #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:27 @yitzha_sarwono if there is a lack of motivation the teacher needs to find out why , could be many reasons #eltchat
jurylady 02:27 RT @ShellTerrell: Happy 4th of July – Celebrate Independence http://bit.ly/lrUxKv #esl #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:28 @Shaunwilden I held off mentioning dogme, especially for you! ;-) #eltchat
chrisjw133 02:28 RT @yitzha_sarwono: @chrisjw133 @Shaunwilden and motivating can sometimes takes more than half session!lol. But the good part is you'll bond better too #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:28 @PrettyButWise 121 teaching #eltchat
barbsaka 02:29 @breathyvowel I use a lot of picture books and games with 121 for kids #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:29 RT @barbsaka: @web2literacy I think that value lies in how closely 1-1 is able to fit student goals #eltchat
breathyvowel 02:29 Hi #eltchat. Just got back from football training. What activities would you recommend to make a 121 lesson fun, esp. with kids?
barbsaka 02:29 @web2literacy I think that value lies in how closely 1-1 is able to fit student goals #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:30 RT @breathyvowel: Hi #eltchat. Just got back from football training. What activities would you recommend to make a 121 lesson fun, esp. with kids?
Shaunwilden 02:30 @theteacherjames Oh how kind :-) Student-centered learning and 121 go in hand no need to cloud it with other terminology :-)  #eltchat
chrisjw133 02:30 @breathyvowel sometimes games you would do with larger groups work too, you just have to get involved! #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:30 @web2literacy well spent?that depends on how the learner feels after the session really.Most think it's worth the money though #eltchat
web2literacy 02:30 @barbsaka yes absolutely #eltchat
evab2001 02:31 RT @barbsaka: RT @CastanedaSusana: Using materials given by Ss is key: emails, presentations, covering letters #eltchat #eltchat
barbsaka 02:31 @HerreraVeronica Welcome, at any time! Looking forward to hearing from you :) #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:31 @barbsaka @breathyvowel me too! and we do some constructive or printing art too! #eltchat RE:teach 121 4 kids
evab2001 02:31 RT @chucksandy: I haven't done much 121 teaching in a long time but used to find it much more tiring than teaching a class.True for y'all too? #eltchat
web2literacy 02:31 @yitzha_sarwono yes I'm sure the learners  like to 121 attention and tailored nature of the teaching #eltchat
HerreraVeronica 02:31 Hi all! Sorry I'm late for #eltchat. glad the topic is 1-1 teaching.
OUPELTGlobal 02:31 RT @barbsaka: @breathyvowel I use a lot of picture books and games with 121 for kids #eltchat
jakubbrindza 02:31 RT @OUPELTGlobal: Do you use humour in the classroom? http://oxford.ly/naL7Kl  from @MrWriteCzech #english #teaching #efl #eltchat #skills
onetooneteacher 02:32 Think 121 teachers have to rethink role totally - it's why many teachers don't like doing it #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:32 I think humour is very important in 121, as well as in class obviously #eltchat
timjulian60 02:33 I insist S does lots of  boring stuff at home (grammar exs etc) to maximise time we can talk in lesson #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:33 RT @onetooneteacher: Think 121 teachers have to rethink role - it's why many teachers don't like doing it #eltchat Agreed, more of partner?
leannepri 02:33 just finished class. pleased the topic's 121  #eltchat
barbsaka 02:33 @onetooneteacher How should the roles be re-thought? #eltchat
PrettyButWise 02:33 @barbsaka interesting topic but sorry when does the chat start i thought @ 7 gmt ? #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:33 @onetooneteacher Could you say how? #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:33 @Shaunwilden yes,and being 121,i think it's easier to learn about their lack of motivation and raise them up ^^ #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:33 @OUPELTGlobal Absolutely, as is the ability to relate to people. Warmth etc. #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:34 RT @timjulian60: I insist S does lots of  boring stuff at home (grammar exs etc) to maximise time we can talk in lesson #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:34 @theteacherjames I started the other way but once i found my feet loved 121 as you can do so much more #eltchat
TONATIUHSREYES 02:34 RT @OUPELTGlobal: Many times I found 121 sts unrealistic, thinking they could learn everything in a year #eltchat
barbsaka 02:34 @onetooneteacher Sounds like a biiiiig job :) #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:34 @onetooneteacher I started as a 121 teacher and had to adapt to classes. Maybe that's why I like it so much. #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:34 not give of correct information only - language partner, the role of the missing classmate, coach, motivator, friend at times too #eltchat
barbsaka 02:34 RT @timjulian60: I insist S does lots of  boring stuff at home (grammar exs etc) to maximise time we can talk in lesson #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:34 @leannepri  Was it a 121 lesson? #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:34 @OUPELTGlobal yes, humor and personal approach I believe,since we get to see her in her eyes at all time ^^ #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:35 @OUPELTGlobal I don't know about like but understand them  - I cant say I've liked all my 121s but put on my teaching smile :-) #eltchat
chrisjw133 02:35 @OUPELTGlobal and for them to like you! we've had students request new teachers a lot #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:35 It's more important to like the student than in a "normal" class, no? #eltchat
chucksandy 02:35 RT @timjulian60: I insist S does lots of  boring stuff at home (grammar exs etc) to maximise time we can talk in lesson #eltchat
PrettyButWise 02:36 @onetooneteacher don't u think 121 teaching can limit creativity ? And social interaction doesn't exist ? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:36 @leampri Arh thats a huge issues the 121 who is doing cos the company says so  #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:36 @timjulian60 If the boring stuff is boring indeed, it won't work anyway with my 121s #eltchat
GilMattos 02:36 @chucksandy not really. I've always loved 121 teaching #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:36 @theteacherjames interesting, it's  a big shift in either direction #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:36 @Shaunwilden It certainly gives you a great deal of freedom & flexibility.  #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:37 @PrettyButWise Isn't the interaction more normal i.e. more like it would be in real life? #eltchat
BobK99 02:37 RT @OUPELTGlobal: @onetooneteacher Could you say how? #eltchat! T has to be participant in role-plays, games etc
onetooneteacher 02:38 @PrettyButWise  not for me - it's helped me grow more creatively as a teacher #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:38 RT @chucksandy: how effective do you think 121 teaching is compared to small group teaching? #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:38 RT @chucksandy: how effective do you think 121 teaching is compared to small group teaching?   #eltchat > Depends on the level / goals
barbsaka 02:38 @chucksandy Depends on student. My 7 yo let's reading slide when we're w/small group #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:38 RT @timjulian60: @mmgrinberg  by boring I meant stuff where the Ts presence is irrelevant, ie grammar exs #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:38 RT @web2literacy: #eltchat 121 teachers out there - do you see more progress with your 121 learners than say in class teaching?
theteacherjames 02:38 @onetooneteacher It definitely felt like it at the time! Love both forms of teaching though, to be honest. Pros and cons for both. #eltchat
web2literacy 02:38 #eltchat 121 teachers out there - do you see more progress with your 121 learners than say in class teaching?

yitzha_sarwono 02:38 @OUPELTGlobal well,like is a matter of feeling,but being professional and try to fill their needs is what we should provide in 121 #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:38 @leampri Does the company also dictate what he needs to learn? #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:39 @web2literacy progress. Definitely feel it's more noticeable. May just be easier to notice, but I feel it's more effective too. #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:39 @PrettyButWise @onetooneteacher I Think u have 2 b more creative in 121 teaching.as for interaction,we can give task like interview #eltchat
timjulian60 02:39 @chrisjw133  my presentations are short but perfectly formed:) #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:39 @barbsaka can be but the rewards are fantastic #eltchat
barbsaka 02:40 @chucksandy Absolutely. I dislike the "paid friend" aspect of adult 1-1 in Japan  #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:40 @theteacherjames depends on the students, I think. For some the pressure can be too much, especially if it's the company paying #eltchat
web2literacy 02:40 @theteacherjames is that more in speaking for instance in terms of confidence, fluency etc? #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:40 @yitzha_sarwono @PrettyButWise agree with you totally - you have to be very creative to enliven the interaction #eltchat
chucksandy 02:40 not abt any here but when I walk thru coffee shops in Japan i  see 121 teaching that "looks" more conversational than anything else #eltchat
barbsaka 02:40 One of my fave places to teach 121 with adults is in virutal world #secondlife #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:41 @leampri Is that a bad thing, assuming he needs Eng for work then there is a lot to go on #eltchat
timjulian60 02:41 @chrisjw133  :) plus I  get S to  work hard at home between lessons, so don't think the problem arises.  #eltchat
PrettyButWise 02:41 @onetooneteacher ok but as a S don't u think dealing with more than one person more helpful in acquiring information or L ? #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:41 I feel that one of the most challenging areas of 121 teaching is designing good speaking task, esp when teaching 'practical Eng' #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:41 @chucksandy a small group is more effective for me,but in 121, we can access his needs better as we can understand her better #eltchat
web2literacy 02:42 @mmgrinberg is designing tasks for 121 more challenging, or at least how is the  design process different? #eltchat
HerreraVeronica 02:42 it's difficult to adapt coursebook activities to 121 #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:42 @PrettyButWise well no point saying 121 is better than  plenty missing for sure but doesn't have to be impoverished environment #eltchat
BobK99 02:42 RT @OUPELTGlobal: It's more imp like the st than in a "normal" class, no? #eltchat ! Well opp cert true. Hard to sp 2hrs w s/o you  DISlk
OUPELTGlobal 02:42 I like it when a student tells me about his/her work, I learn a lot and they improve their English #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:42 #eltchat There's lack of meaningful repetition. How do you get your ss recycling language?
theteacherjames 02:42 @web2literacy That's the obvious way to measure improvement. 121 is very helpful in making them more comfortable with the language. #eltchat
chucksandy 02:42 RT @barbsaka: @chucksandy Absolutely. I dislike the "paid friend" aspect of adult 1-1 in Japan < yes. & lots of untrained friends 2 #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:43 @web2literacy I'm talking about speaking activities, esp the more controlled ones. See my tweet re repetition #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:43 @mmgrinberg Ask about the same topics in different ways so the student is talking about the same thing from different angles #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:43 @chucksandy it usually begins w/ lots of conversation,but then you can do some teaching too,maybe best not to do so in public place #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:43 RT @HerreraVeronica: it's difficult to adapt coursebook activities to 121 #eltchat How so? most work if the teacher becomes an equal
onetooneteacher 02:43 for me yes - group IELTS lessons - slow progress over time - 121 great results because tailored to student #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:43 @web2literacy Think there are other harder to measure benefits too, like listening skills. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:44 @mmgrinberg Why is there a lack of meaningful repetition? #eltchat
web2literacy 02:44 @HerreraVeronica yes and few 121 off the shelf resources available? #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:44 @OUPELTGlobal True. I haven't been in that situation for a while, but now I'd try & free them from the pressure. Not easy though.  #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:44 @HerreraVeronica not really,with 1 student you'll have all the time you need to do and discuss the coursebook #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:45 try not to think '121' - it's just specialised pairwork really #eltchat
gret 02:45 @mmgrinberg How about using web 2.0 tools w/ 1 to 1 students? Skyping, blogging, so many things can be done. #eltchat
web2literacy 02:45 @mmgrinberg yes, but speaking activities the most difficult to design? What do you think? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:45 @HerreraVeronica e.g. So find sb who becomes think of sb who and the sts has to explain why #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:46 @OUPELTGlobal  IWhat about functional lang (I'd like 2 make a reservtn)? In grps they can repeat it 8 times  and make fun #eltchat
IreneAlcamo 02:46 the worst thing of 121 teaching is the lack in competitiveness #eltchat
web2literacy 02:46 @onetooneteacher  - but there is a very different power relation involved in 121 cf pairwork? #eltchat
chucksandy 02:46 RT @onetooneteacher: try not to think 121 - its just specialised pairwork really > i like that ^^ #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:46 @mmgrinberg Getting them to recycle is very difficult, it's true. Still looking for the answer to that. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:46 @web2literacy Think you can take, part, record, bring a friend on skype #eltchat
BobK99 02:46 RT @web2literacy: @HerreraVeronica yes and few 121 off the shelf resources available? #eltchat! No prob - I roll my own :-)
barbsaka 02:46 RT @onetooneteacher: try not to think '121' - it's just specialised pairwork really #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:46 I asked my 121 student to perform interview to her friends to get her to speak to other people than me #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:47 @web2literacy #eltchat well there could be if you taught 121 and used materials as a barrier between you and S
Shaunwilden 02:47 @HerreraVeronica Well i dont like bingo fullstop but u can both play  & play two cards thats 4 cards and the loser gets the coffee #eltchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:47 A good trick is to pretend you don't fully understand something about their work, getting them to repeat more slowly or differently #eltchat
timjulian60 02:47 My one2ones love doing dictoglosses v challenging but satisfying #eltchat
barbsaka 02:48 Seems a trade off. Less interaction with many, but more chances to speak with one #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:48 @yitzha_sarwono  yes or if you're creative you can use drama style techniques and pretend to be other people etc .. #eltchat
groconemoto 02:48 RT @barbsaka One of my fave places to teach 121 with adults is in virutal world #secondlife #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:48 RT @OUPELTGlobal: A good trick is to pretend you don't fully understand something about their work, getting them to repeat more slowly or differently #eltchat
yitzha_sarwono 02:48 @PrettyButWise @onetooneteacher sure they need normal class 4 interaction.We can have things like 'bring your friends' day for it #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:49 @CastanedaSusana topics are important yes and great things about 121 is students can take lead on choosing them #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:49 If we believe that 2 teach is 2 learn, then 121 gives great opp's for sts to teach us about their lives, work & experience. #ELTChat
web2literacy 02:49 @onetooneteacher well we want quite the opposite of course but there  are different power dynamics  whatever approach and materials #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:49 @theteacherjames A game w my teen 121. After each round we listen to the rec, if he dzn't make certain mistks he wins; if not, I do #eltchat
CastanedaSusana 02:49 @onetooneteacher more than creativity, I think it's about engaging topics #ELTchat
OUPELTGlobal 02:50 RT @gret: @theteacherjames agreed! we can learn so much from our students! #eltchat
Shaunwilden 02:50 RT @mmgrinberg: #eltchat Voice recorders work gr8 w 121
onetooneteacher 02:50 @web2literacy i agree i guess i try to deteachify myself as much as i can in the lessons so students relax in production #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:50 #eltchat Voice recorders work gr8 w 121
gret 02:50 @theteacherjames agreed! we can learn so much from our students! #eltchat
barbsaka 02:50 We have about 10 minutes left #eltchat
CastanedaSusana 02:51 @onetooneteacher: @CastanedaSusana topics are important and great thing bout 121 is students can take lead on choosing them #eltchat YES!
breathyvowel 02:51 RT @mmgrinberg: #eltchat Voice recorders work gr8 w 121 < I really want to do this just chatting with Korean friends, but don't have time.
HerreraVeronica 02:51 @OUPELTGlobal @gret @theteacherjames There's real communication/info gap #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:51 ... #eltchat And you can tell yr 121 to record themselves and manage the listening / correction process on their own
yitzha_sarwono 02:51 RT @theteacherjames: If we believe that 2 teach is 2 learn, then 121 gives great opp's for sts to teach us about their lives, work & experience. #ELTChat
Shaunwilden 02:51 RT @barbsaka: If you haven't already, could you share 1 activity/idea that has worked well for you in 121 classes? #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:51 @mmgrinberg Nice idea - thanks. #eltchat
PrettyButWise 02:51 i think 121 is a successful method to teach but it totally depends on the teacher's creativity or it will prevent social progress #eltchat
barbsaka 02:51 If you haven't already, could you share 1 activity/idea that has worked well for you in 121 classes? #eltchat
Marisa_C 02:52 just catching the tail end of #ELTchat  hello everyone :-)
Shaunwilden 02:52 @mmgrinberg And then play it back to themselves while they are commuting etc :-) #eltchat
theteacherjames 02:52 RT @chucksandy: RT @onetooneteacher: try not to think 121 - its just specialised pairwork really > i like that ^^ #eltchat
timjulian60 02:52 What I like about 121 is that there are as many types of lesson as  there are ss - groups can become too T-led hence samey #eltchat
barbsaka 02:53 Projects like digital books involve a lot of listening, speaking, writing, and reading (with my 7 yo) http://youtu.be/PxZDgENojWc #eltchat
mmgrinberg 02:53 In general, I agree that we should use as few generic materials as possible, but there's usually a certain lack of listening #eltchat
Marisa_C 02:53 @Shaunwilden you especially !!! Behave! #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 02:53 RT @Marisa_C: just catching the tail end of #ELTchat  hello everyone :-) On no the boss lady  is here everyone behave :-)

PrettyButWise 02:54 @yitzha_sarwono @onetooneteacher yea it's a great idea and we might visit different places and have interaction with public #eltchat
chucksandy 02:54 RT @Marisa_C: @Shaunwilden you especially !!! Behave! > glad you didn't call me out for being careful w/ my behavior ;-) #eltchat
onetooneteacher 02:54 @timjulian60 great point agree totally with that method-led traditional ELT - big yawn #eltchat
Marisa_C 02:54 Sorry to come in latem- has anyone used wikis with their 1-2-1's ! We do for each course #ELtchat
Shaunwilden 02:54 @Marisa_C Yes boss, bowed head and subservient look :-) #eltchat
gret 02:54 @barbsaka Blogging has been great in my 121 classes. Students write for an audience and it's highly motivating for them. #eltchat

yitzha_sarwono 02:56 @PrettyButWise @onetooneteacher for sure! it can enhance their confidence too,see? 121 doesn't always mean losing interaction ^^ #eltchat
Marisa_C 02:56 @BobK99 we don't use wikis for tools but for teacher and student to communicate - repository of work, error correction #ELTchat
