This year, I have the luxury of having 14 students, 2 of which haven't showed up their noses in 4 sessions, so their abilities are still a big mystery to me. Among the remaining pool, based on my limited face time with the students, 4 are in the advanced level, 3 in intermediate, 3 in basic, while 2 are in the pre-basic level. La dee da! This is going to be a fun class.
Currently I'm using Quest 1 Reading and Writing and First Steps in Academic Writing, both are published by Pearson-Longman. So far, the class could fly safely with the first chapters of the books. I did see some confused looks from the passengers, but hopefully they could handle a little confusion and enjoy the trip :). Unfortunately, in my 2nd meeting today, 2 students went MIA. I hope they didn't get poisoned.
