Project 400 – Oral English with Lenny

As part of the Project 400, I am visiting other classrooms to see how English is being taught.

Lenny, an American teacher at a Chinese college, invited me to attend his lesson.

Lenny was new to the school but seemed to have gotten off to a good start. He gave students speaking activities to prepare and then students were chosen to perform them in class. This was something that I observed Martin, a Canadian at another campus for this same school, doing as well with good affect. Lenny had some students do presentations and dialogs for a trade show. Afterward Lenny staged mock job interviews.

It was interesting to see how Lenny spoke to and interacted with the students. It was useful to hear what the students thought about this teaching and how they reacted to it.
