Helping tools are often various types of audio-visual media including internet. Translation of text and proper pronunciation as well as practice of sentence formation via conversation and in writing form, are very important to be fully immersed with the new language experience. One on-one-tutoring starting with the basic grammar terms, writing and reading is fundamental. Working with two or three students is pretty effective as well. Small writing assignments and tests will help improve student's grammar, tenses and punctuation. Reading own material out loud is also the key to improvement in pronunciation.
