sounds like an interesting challenge.
i remember a few years ago i had a group of beginners to teach.
when i arrived at the club, there was deafening noise from heavy machines. instead of my usual explanations, i had to resort to showing them what i wanted them to do. we had a lot of fun and it worked quite well too.
