    Have you looked on the British Council website? They have lots of resources on there for lessons. Are you teaching adults or kids? If it's kids you're teaching then www.primaryresources.co.uk is really helpful.

    That might make learning boring... Plus there are a lot of letters to learn in one go. Best to start with something that they will go away thinking "yeh, this is good this English lark" hahaha well something similar in their own language of course.

    What language do they speak and how much English have they got already?

    So you've got a mixed ability group? Or are they all at the same level in English? If so, I'd start off with a smiple "who are you?" type class. Start by introducing yourself and practising the grammar structures, then get them doing it in pairs. Then do it out loud or if you think your group has got that easily, then make them tell the class about the person next to them, obviously practise that structure before too.
