Grammar by ear

incl. materials
oral, written
15 min.


The learner can consulate common chunks of words.




·                     Choose a common chunk you want to consolidate and write it on the blackboard, e.g.
                            In summertime…
                            When I was ten, …
                            Unfortunately, I cannot …
                            Maybe tomorrow, I will…

·                     Let the learners one by one make a sentence.

Tips for the instructor

This is a useful exercise if you want to practice and consolidate grammatical items such as tenses or inversion (depending on the target language) without explaining the grammatical terms or rules.
