I use a lot of pictures, articles and props when I teach. I often take my students out of the class to experience "the real life" outside class.I don't use books, but I ctailor make the courses to suit the clients. I create a lot of material with different online tools. My classes are all about communication, my aim is to teach my students to communicate in their chosen language while having fun.
