I have learnt the best ways to deal with first lessons, either when the students know each other, or when they don't. I learned the use of warmers and remembered what it was like to have to show up at a brick and mortal classroom in the early hours of the morning. I learnt to pair stronger students with weaker students in situations of varying levels. I also learnt some ways to deal with a large class. I also picked up pointers on troubles with the use of students' native languages, dealing with reluctant students, and difficulties with listening texts.
