Hello! Any advice?

I'm volunteering in a small town in Ecuador and have been asked to start English classes for the tour guides, taxi drivers and police officers.

These are all adult, low level beginners and I am not sure where to start. I want to keep them engaged but am finding it difficult with such a low level. I only have experience teaching kindergarten and 2nd grade, so it's a bit tough to think of age appropriate ways to keep adults engaged.

I'm on an extremely low to non-existent budget but have the environment and the equipment they use for their jobs to work with. Do I just make them memorize phrases for the first month or so while adding vocabulary?

Has anyone made a curriculum for job-specific English? If so, any suggestions on where to begin?

Thanks so much for your help.

Ann
