My goal is for students to feel at ease during our classes. Let's maximize participation and not worry about making mistakes. They are a natural part of the learning process. I like having articles during the classes because they are very efficient. Articles enable us to work on pronunciation, collocations, vocabulary and debate at the same time. General conversation is fine too. In reality, it's necessary to see what the student needs are in order to design the best possible class for them.
