    Teaching Approach






    Program Description


    The lessons structure I use varies depending on the students’ needs and ability. My aim is to always adapt my lessons to meet the student’s needs and ability. My initial first lesson with a new student is primarily conversational (unless the lessons sought are on reading and writing) in order to gauge the student’s Amharic skill. I use the initial meeting to gauge the students skills and base my future lessons on that initial assessment.

    My lessons plans range from novice/non-speaker to experienced/advanced. Novice/non speakers are those will with little/no Amharic skill. Such students begin their language training by first learning what I call “Amharic for Travelers.” Amharic for travelers is basic lessons on greetings, asking directions, numbers and simple vocabulary building. Form here students advance into "Beginners Amharic" they learn nouns/ pronouns, verb conjugation, vicabulary building and sentence s tructure, and. Those wishing to learn the script are introduced to the Amharic script.) For more advanced/intermediate students who have reudimentary labguage skills I have lessons in grammar and sentence structure and for those wishing to learn the Amharic scripts reading and writing exercises to familiarize them with Fidel and advance their reading skills. I base most of my reading lessons on the class room teaching styles and techniques used by Ethiopian teachers for first and second graders.

    Additionally I offer simple conversation practice lessons for students who are fairly familiar with the language but need regular practice and keep up with their Amharic skill and some guidance to develop their language skill.

    I also have some experience working with younger student (5 to 8 years of age). With children I often use American songs and games adapted into Amharic to help them develop their vocabulary and eventually sentence structure and grammar skills.
