I always have an eye on the student who responds best via visual representations of complicated material. Coding everything with colors or symbols has always helped me....and I find it really helps my students. The students who don't necessarily need the visual component still benefit from them. Creativity is key to teaching all subjects. And it's especially true with foreign languages --which can be deceptively complicated and often require creative ways to make rules comprehensible to all the kiddos.
I cherish my beautiful students' faces when he/she finally understands a difficult concept and then says "Señora, that was soooo easy!"
