How to behave with adult learners with poor grammar/memory

    Hello,
    I hope some more experienced teacher can help me to solve the puzzle. I run my own classes of Italian only for adult learners. However, I find it very difficult to help with memory and grammar. I give homework and exercises but some learners struggle to remember things, this impacts directly on their ability to converse.
    How can I help them effectively? What sort of material would help them to practice speaking more?
    Thank you all.

    I find Memrise the best for things like this, it means they can use it in their own time and having it as a phone app means they will often find 5 minutes to have a go. You can have a class group and they can see how much time each of them spends on it. They can be surprisingly competitive!
