Have you ever had a confusing experience?

I'm really having difficulties leading a team.
The team is a volunteer one who support international students at my university by Japanese students and I became a leader this year.
Because of the coronavirus, international students suddenly lost chances to speak in Japanese with Japanese students and I really felt sorry for them, so I made the Free Talk as the activity for them online. It started a month ago, but some of the Japanese students don't voluntarily talk and do something for them:(

I'm really having difficulties leading a team.

1. Use "that" to introduce a defining clause.
2. Since "team" is a singular form, use the third person singular form of the verb, add 's'.
I really like the idea of your group. Do you think that the Japanese students need a little more guidance about what to talk about? What if you made a list of conversation topics they could use or a list of phrases they could teach. I'm sure the international students would love to learn natural Japanese.

Thank you for your advice!
I strongly think that Japanese students need more guidance, but it is a good idea that I make such a list.
My seniors will probably work together with me, so I'll do that!
Take a leadership online is more difficult than face-to-face one, but I believe it will be a great experience.
International students are really grad it, so our volunteer team are really happy too!

1. Use the present participle to form a participle phrase. Omit the article "a" to refer to the state or position of being a leader. It is not countable.
2. "a" is an indefinite article used to refer to non-specific or non-particular things. "a" is used with adjectives or singular countable nouns that begin with consonants or a consonant sound.
3. I believe this is what you meant.
4. "Team" is in the singular form, use "is".
I think that the list is very helpful. Do you work well with your seniors? Have you ever done a face-to-face leadership lesson before?

I really get along with most of seniors, but I've never met rest of them in person because they started the volunteer on April! I think I can be close with most of them!

I've never done a face-to-face leadership before in the volunteer team.
I just followed my seniors and a professor.
It is difficult to give members messages online because they sounds strict and emotionless a bit.

1/2. Use the definite article "the" to refer to particular things.
3. Use the present participle which acts as a gerund in this case.
4. Use the preposition "in" to indicate the period of time in which something happened.
5. We say close "to" something.
6. Use the third person plural form of the verb, remove "s".
It is a good thing that you are close to most of them. Have you ever tried to do video calls with some of your students? It could make it easier for you to communicate with them.

I held the video calls last week and it went well!
Some of the members start to be very voluntarily and active. I really appreciate it.
After this coronavirus is over, I also want to recruit members although I'm not sure there will be any works for international students.

I'm doing the other volunteer work outside of my university and the activity also became online.

1. I believe this is what you meant. 'and' is not needed here. 'voluntarily" is an adverb. Adverbs modify a verb or another adverb.
That was a good idea to do voluntary work with students that are not from your university. When you have your lessons, do you conduct them separately or all of your students, including those not from your university become active at the same time?

It is definitely inspiring for me.
The volunteer work is held from 6:00 PM, so all member of the group don't have any lessons, so everyone can join it!
However, the members are flexible, so I can be absent from the meeting if I feel tired.

1. "All" is most often used as a determiner. We use plural countable nouns or an uncountable noun after it.
  • unexpected (予想していなかった)
  • incident (出来事)
  • mess(混乱)
  • trouble(トラブル)
  • predict(~を予測する)
  • I have never experienced such a thing(今までそんなことを経験したことがなかった)
  • break the ice(打ち解ける)
  • deal with the issue(その問題に対応する)
  • think outside the box(試行錯誤する)
  • I was baffled by 〜(〜に当惑した)
