First I like to assess the students knowledge by asking them for a small demonstration. If they're more interested in written communication I'll ask them to write one or two small essays, stories of life and stuff like that. If they're more interested in verbal, I'll try talking to them a little and then see what their situation is. I work mainly with students who are interested in improving their communication and already have some knowledge.
I'm a brazilian engineer living in Melbourne. I've always worked dealing with people (mainly construction sites) and I've learned that communication is something that can be exercised and improved beyond our wildest dreams. I think everyone has is able to learn a new language, all they need is discipline and a patient yet attentive teacher.
