Parent Camp
« on: December 09, 2010, 02:08:29 pm »
Hi everyone

I've just heard that although I'm teaching 3 weeks of camp I still need an extra 10 hours, so I've been told to teach a parents camp! I teach in a Middle School and I'm just finishing organising my Winter Camp for my Kids called Around the World. I have to teach 9 classes to the parents and I'm stuck on the last lesson... I'm doing boring things with them like self-introduction, short films and questions, food and restaurants, expressing opinions, finding the right word, etc.

Any ideas for one last lesson?

Thanks!

I used the Konglish lesson to good effect with some adult students. It's somewhere here on the middle school board.

Cultural Discussions. You can find the thread from the site or buy yourself a copy of Ugly American Ugly Korean. Read off a page and open up discussion. Usually you can fill in an entire class off of 1 page and the subsequent tangential conversation.

Also, any cooking class would be a big hit with them as well as an opportunity for you to cook a little something and share a favorite recipe of your from back home. If not, see if you can use that class to take them out to lunch. I have gotten permission from my school and we used our restaurant language together (also a good time to let them teach you some simple restaurant phrases in Korean).

Oooh thank you!

I especially like the going out for lunch idea - I'm teaching restaurant language a few weeks before that so it would really be handy :)

Thanks so much for the suggestions xxx
