I had a great time last night at Vida teaching the intermediate English as a second language class.
Several weeks ago I discovered a book by Matthew McMillion on using improv to teach foreign languages. I have been using his concepts for some time, but had hesitated to use his suggestion of simply giving a line of dialog to a one of a pair of students and letting them run with it.
Wow! It worked so well. I was pleasantly surprised. The students got right into the dialog, and along the way exposed some areas for improvement in their English. Naturally there was lots of laughter too. I went to class feeling tired and a little bit down and left feeling exhilarated.
My students never fail to amaze me.
