I think this lesson has given some good basics to developing a lesson plan, especially for places that might not have their own curriculum established already. I feel confident based on this information and my past experiences that I will be able to create a flexible lesson plan that will be applicable.I really like the ESA format. It is a simple and easy to remember formula for teaching in any context. I really like the balance of it. I am learning Chinese now, so I can see how this method would be helpful to any language learner. I really like the free talking part as well. Students need that!
