As you know, we’ve been working on the curriculum. Writing curriculum for the younger learners is easy: we’ve had them from the pre-reading-and-writing stage so they have no problems speaking. What can’t be understood through images can usually be done with a dictionary (not ideal, I know, but we’re lacking sensory input when doing this over the internet).
The problem arises with older students who’ve been “reading and writing” — in one form or another — for several years. I found this video on YouTube that has given me a couple of ideas. Let me know if you’ve got anything that would help us.
