We teachers of English or other languages have the danger and peril of giving facts of the language in classes, while the key point for classes is, in my opinion, communication.
We shouldn’t confine classes to presenting vocabulary and something else maybe.
Currently we are working on texts: stories I invent and make up, and one activity, after reading the text several times, is giving an oral summary. Therefore they practice speaking a lot. / Photo from: Singapore matakdometork com. the photo is just an illustration
