In pairs, we are sitting "across the corner": it is both convenient for work and psychologically comfortable. Of course, for this purpose we need the tables that provide for comfortable sitting on all four sides.

Learning in pairs simplifies teacher's work and completely prevents occurrence of "slow students." Please, find the statistical proof of this statement here: http://www.paarschool.com/paar-ns-ger-6.php - this is statistics of pair class in one Germany school.
What do we offer?
We offer you individual components of Pair Learning approach. You can use these components immediately, "as is," without any additional preparation.
At this moment, we don't know anything about you and your students. So, we cannot provide you with any pair learning component that exactly fits the subject you are teaching and age of your students. That's why we show you here a small fragment that you can use "by analogy."
Here is one element of pair learning.
* * *
Teacher asks students to sit in pairs, and says them:
Let's invent the fairy tale, each of you should invent your own. Take a sheet of paper, and write at the top your name and date. Ask your partner what sentence can start the fairy tale. Give your sheet to the partner and ask him to write this sentence down. Then, invent your beginning sentence, and write it to the partner's sheet. Then, change your partner.
In the next pair, read aloud your beginning of fairy tale, then ask your partner to invent the next sentence and write it down to your sheet. Do the same to your partner's fairy tale.
Teacher allocates some time to this work, and then interrupts group work.
