In this course, which is part of the series on teaching one-to-one, we focus on practical activities you can use in your teaching sessions. We first look at some important characteristics of one-to-one activities, then we look at ten different activity types. Finally, we explore examples of these ten activity types, including creating some and adapting group activities.
