This lesson uses grammar to teach you intentional practice.

Introduction: 

Discuss the difference between these questions.

  1. What does that mean? 
  2. Could you tell me what that means?
Warm Up: 

Is it easy or difficult to learn grammar? Why?

Language: 

With your teacher, choose an interestinguseful grammar point. They will help you decide.

Study it like this:

  1. Choose a point.
  2. Understand it. 
    • Learn the rule or convention.
    • Read or hear many examples. 
    • Ask questions. 
  3. Practice. Use it with feedback. 
    • First, make easy sentences.
    • Then, make interesting sentences.
  4. Use it naturally.
Practice: 

After understanding a language point, you need to create places to use it. 

Let's practice.

Intentional practice

Where can you use new grammar in the future?

Think of 2 situations. 

Self-check

  • Do you often make grammar mistakes when you speak?
  • How important is grammar for you?

Homework

  1. Use The English Farm's homework system. Write 3 examples from today's grammar point. It should take less than 5 minutes.
  2. Make a place to note important language.
    • Use a small notebook like a Moleskin. Or, use an app on your phone.
    • When your 3 homework examples are corrected, add them to your notebook or notes app.
    • Review daily.
