Table of contents provided by Syndetics

  • The authors and series editor
  • Foreword
  • Introduction
  • How to use this book
  • 1 Grammar exercises and drills (10 activities)
  • The activities are structured around three different aspects of grammar work: tasks requiring learners to use a particular structure or language point
  • tasks structured to exploit a more general notion, such as past time
  • and tasks drawing upon the learners' formal knowledge of the target language and its grammar rules.
  • 2 Vocabulary (10 activities)
  • All these activities aim at expanding vocabulary. They are structured in such a way that they reveal lexical gaps and give learners a chance to fill them, so that students have more control over what they learn.
  • 3 Integrated skills (10 activities)
  • These activities aim at improving the learners' general competence in the target language.
  • Each activity contains elements of all four basic skills.
  • 4 Writing (10 activities)
  • In these activities writing is never carried out in isolation, but is the main focus in an integrated and interdependent activity.
  • 5 Translation (10 activities)
  • The activities in this section fall into two types: firstly, those which encourage the learner to bring an example of their first language use into the classroom and then work on how to express this in English
  • Secondly, there are activities which call on learners to dip into their collective cultural heritage in remembering songs, poems, stories and so on.
  • 6 Games (10 activities)
  • In these activities learners are involved not only in the playing, but also in the preparation of the games
  • This means learners have meaningful language practice before they play - for example, some of the activities require learners to write clear instructions for the other players.
  • 7 Exam preparation (10 activities)
  • These activities offer learners practice in dealing with examination-type exercises without doing old papers
  • 8 How to think learner-based teaching
  • This section is divided into three parts
  • The first encourages teachers to consider how much learner-based teaching already exists in their teaching
  • The second presents two activities to show in detail how lessons can be planned on the principles of such teaching
  • The third suggests stages for teachers to introduce teacher-based teaching into their repertoire
