Well, it isn't the whole purpose of the trip, but me teaching them English for 3 hours per day is the price of room and board while I am there. The other 21 hours every day I will be soaking up Spanish language and culture. I figure a lot of it will be just conversations, but I want them to feel it was worth it and that I was/am a decent teacher, so I want to have a few things prepared.That is SO cool and makes total sense! Thanks for not taking my comment the wrong way!You might want to give your local college a call. Just buzz someone in the Education Department that specializes in training ESL teachers. I'll bet they can suggest some great tools. And the English-language magazines and stuff would be a great supplement. I'd do 2 hours of "real" teaching and one hour of fun stuff like reading gossip magazines. I know when I'm in Europe I always pick up local newspapers and stuff and try to read the articles. If the pictures give me a hint about the subject matter, then I can usually figure a lot of it out.Another really fun thing would be to teach them a recipe or two in English. When I was a kid, a Finnish friend that was visiting the US taught me to make some traditional Finnish cookies. It's a great way to teach foods and numbers!
