Thank you! I have found that a crystal clear focus for each lesson certainly helps with planning! And also trying not to pack the lesson full of information (especially as I mostly teach conversation classes at the moment).

An outline with jotted notes is best I think, especially when referring to it during classes (if you need to). Were you planning with a textbook or without?

Thanks for the suggestions! As these are discussion classes, there are no previous lesson plans available (I think most conversation class teachers improvise on the fly). Online resources do help somewhat.

Holiday planning certainly works best when there is a textbook or a curriculum to follow! For conversation classes, it's slightly more difficult - as the students choose the focus of the course/lessons.
Preparing far in advance certainly helps with making classes run smoothly. Have you ever had to change your lessons/curriculum half-way through, perhaps to cover an unexpected gap in knowledge?
