This is a presentation  and series of handouts I spent a long time putting together but it follows my belief that it is valuable to combine communicative teaching with a focus on form and in particular "language chunks" - learning expressions that are useful in different contexts. 

This N.Y. Times article is an interesting read on language chunks. 

Each lesson focuses on a different language function where students use  a language prompt and then respond to it using one of the given language chunks/expressions.  Teachers can guide student use - not every chunk is a correct response and the usage / difference can be subtle.  Get the PDF printable version and also a pptx version to share with students on a screen. 

Also see below - Language In Use.   

Purchase this premium EFL Classroom product to help support our costs!  Thanks in advance! 

Here is a sample of some of the 25 lessons in the full book.
