What language system are they teaching?

Clips of language focus stages to show examples of language teaching

Watch the video and you’ll see some clips from lessons. Think about these questions while you watch:

  • Which language system are the teachers teaching? Grammar? Vocabulary? Pronunciation?
  • Which stage of the lesson is it? Is it the stage where the teacher presents the language for the first time or is it the stage for the learners to practise the language?
  • Check your answers with other learners by using the comments section. Comment also on anything you found interesting in the lessons.
