In the webinar we will consider the roles played in language instruction by input, vocabulary and grammar, and explore ways of incorporating grammar teaching into communicatively focused language practice. Our activities take the learner from the first encounter with new language input through focused work on vocabulary to a structured introduction of grammar via scaffolded communicative student-student interaction. Teachers participating in the webinar will receive guidelines for creating and sequencing communicative activities, as well as a set of materials that implement this approach.
