  • Teachers can sell lessons as ‘lesson packages’, providing opportunity to build an income stream. Unlike regular free talk, students can access lesson content in advance, inspiring them to learn with you.

General Guidance and Suggestions

The screenshot at Step 2 shows the topics that PalFish provide to assist you. The ‘How to create a good lesson’ and ‘Lesson examples’ sections are particularly useful. Furthermore, using the template headings PalFish suggest ensures you incorporate everything in your lesson.

I advise including TOEFL and IELTS material like vocabulary, paraphrasing, grammar and interpretation. Moreover, you could use opinions, debate, knowledge areas, events and descriptions of places and people.

My final tip is to keep the lesson as free-flowing as possible. Likewise, lessons don’t have to be rigid in structure and can assume free talk style. My post, PalFish Free Talk details more information on this type of teaching.
