We try to create lessons with natural communication and a familiar atmosphere that permits the student's learning in a enjoyable way. We don't use standard texts, we focus the students needs and interests. We have our own didactic materials as an archive of texts. For us a lesson is a moment of special communication, a moment of pleasure and enjoyment. And our students understand this well.
