I've previously learnt a language (Japanese) via group lessons, but today I'm going to be learning a language (Mongolian) from an individual tutor. I'm not "choosing" between group and individual, as I can't find any group non-online lessons for Mongolian in Sydney.
What pitfalls or bad habits should I watch out for in individual lessons? Ones I can think of are the lesson going at too leisurely a pace, or the lesson turning into an English-language chat about the language's country. I've also chosen for the first lesson to be in a public place. Are there others I should watch out for?
