10 Obstacles when it comes to teaching adults Taught according to the old approach to language teaching that results in fear of making grammar mistakes when speaking Difficulty in acquiring second language in a natural way Fear of feeling ridiculous Unwilling and reluctant to participate in certain types of activities Impatient and easily frustrated Unreal expectations Perfectionists

11 Obstacles when it comes to teaching adults Unwilling to be corrected Short-lived enthusiasm Irregular attendance No time to reinforce at home Changing life situations Pronunciation problems Unclear goals and expectations More demanding than young learners – don’t trust the teacher

12 Wonderland´s recipe for successful adult teaching Making them feel comfortable with the communicative approach to learning English Speaking English as much as possible Natural real life conversations Making them get used to fun even childish activities Individual approach and forming a close relationship with the student

13 Wonderland´s recipe for successful adult teaching Informing students about realistic goals Keeping track of their progress Language practiced in their own individual context Not allowing them to take control over of the class Making them feel important

14 Wonderland´s recipe for successful adult teaching Exposing them to a variety of accents Not correcting every single mistake In conversation class focusing on the usage of grammar structures and not so much on theory.
