In Response To: Teaching English Once a Week in a Prison (andreaa093)

The Suggestions from Nomad Soul are all good ones. It isn't clear whether your students are purely total-beginner ESL learners, or whether there are some basic literacy issues as well. That distinction can make quite a difference in how to teach and in needs analysis.

You may well be able to get advice and some training from organisation - country/religion-based, school-based, etc - in the city.

One example from here in New Zealand for beginner learners who are also migrants are the ones in the link below. Designed for New Zealand and for living in a city, not a prison, but they might give you some inspiration for similar things to adapt/create. These open access.
