My style of teaching is always active and interactive but I also make students talk 70% of the time during the lessons. I prefer to use worksheets as teaching materials. But if the students want to use textbooks, I use Japanese for Busy People, Genki and Minna no Nihongo. I create course plans for students first according to students' needs. For example, traveling, business meeting/mannerism, and casual conversations.
