Reviewing is one of the most important parts of a lesson. Rather than “islands” of English that don’t link up, you want to try and make “pancakes” where each lesson is reviewed in the next one. I’ve written a whole big article on this “Reviewing and how to do it” but the basic three techniques are:
- Review the song from the previous lesson (it would be cool to review every previous song, but usually we don’t have time so one is fine)
- Use the Warm Up Game, but not just commands, also ask all the questions you’ve studied until now e.g. “What do you think of ….?” etc. and the class answer all together.
- When you’ve done around 7 or 8 Genki English Lessons then you can start doing the Lines Game. Just check out this video of the teachers doing it in Beijing!
