Pat, you're being flexible.  That's great.  Different people learn in different ways, and people learn for different reasons.  Clearly, you're not trying to shove anything down their throats.  You want to match what you teach with what they need.  This is one of the big complaints of language schools.  In most, the student starts at A and go to M before even thinking about going to W.  Why?  Sure, some building blocks are necessary.  However, "Give me ten gallons of regular" is a lot more useful to most students than "My aunt's red pen is on the table."  And another thing, you will be teaching English as a Second Language, not English as a Foreign Language.  Your students are going to be putting their English into practice the moment they walk out the door.  They are going to need to know how to talk to a gas station attendant long before they find a need to talk about Auntie's pen.  Boa sorte, cara!
