Really enjoyed your account of first lesson with no books, no writing - only a bee. Reminds me of a friend in Italy who did years of freelance work teaching this way - dogme? - no materials, just talk - don't know about the bee bit. He travelled round the region he lived in teaching mostly in-company and at the students' homes and became so successful (I define success here as: students liked this way of learning; they felt they learnt a lot and that their progress was smooth and almost effortless) that people were leaving private language schools in (small) droves to learn with him! When asked what the secret of his success was, he said 'I don't teach them anything!' - self-effacing, but maybe a lot of dogme truth there. Hilary
