Starting off the course
Explaining the RULES OF THE COURSE before students sign up - that is crucial. And how to get that information over? Printed handouts are not enough. They get lost. They do not get read. They are in bureaucratic language. Use - as I have - an INTRANET WEB SITE. Students respond to web pages. INTRANET means that it is not available on the internet, but only within the institution, on library computers etc. You can also distribute this INTRANET WEB SITE on CDs. This ensures that students have the information and can consult it when they need. They can load this onto their computers, laptops. You can update the INTRANET WEB SITE regularly.
Rehearsal with teacher and with other members of the class:
It is crucial that you make the most of rehearsal time with teacher. There is limited time.
Prepare and write down questions.
Teacher will give rapid notes. Write down as much as you can. Try to remember the rest.
Rehearse with another member of the class. Get their feed-back. Help each other.
