I have evolved slowly into introducing more structured to non-structured practice sequences in the last years. I have a certain love for lecturing on cultural and historical topics. I try to find a topic or topics that the student could find relatable and/or interesting, so they are more comfortable speaking out. Speaking, trying and failing is the only way to really learn a new language, as I am remembering myself while trying to learn Japanese.
