anticipating the problems

problem: Ashkan is the boy who doesn't pay attention to lessons at the half time of the class as usual. solution I should do a quick review on the vocabulary and its MFP by eliciting from students. Problem: Arad doesn't participate in some activities. solution: I can participate in his group by myself to encourage him and engage him. problem: Aysa and Ayda are best friends and talk together very much. solution: I pair them in different groups. problem: Matin doesn't share his feeling about language. solution: I would ask him to help preparing the class with the activities. problem: they may have problem with the pronunciation of UNDER THE and ON THE. Solution: I would put emphases on them more during drilling.
