I am going to help a student with speaking in my native language who is at beginner level.
How would we have the conversation such that the student can take the most out of it?
Some points I made up so far:
- Speak slowly.
- Speak clearly.
- Make short sentences, avoid complicated grammatical structures.
- Keep it one level above their current level so that you don't over-correct.
What else is important to keep in mind when teaching a beginner to speak? I have no educational background on teaching.
I have already asked a similar question in the Stack Exchange of my language (German).
