This lesson is the last of twelve in the Upper Intermediate section of the Learn English Now course and teaches basic, but important, Punctuation.
Unlike the other lessons in this course, the teacher should write each Punctuation symbol on the board for the student to copy. The text, which is given for homework, should be read aloud in the next class by the student; carefully articulating the pauses which show where punctuation has been used.
Simple to use; no graphics, no games, no preparation.
These lessons can be used one-on-one, or with a class of students. Each lesson is exactly 4 pages long, ideal for one hour, and has exercises (with answer key) at the end. The words and phrases should be written down in the student’s notebooks during the class whilst the exercises are printed and given out for homework.
A lot of the course is written in question and answer format so students can learn how to form questions correctly in English. Commonly used idioms are explained, and new vocabulary is written in both English and phonetics (see Lesson A0.01) to help with pronunciation. Additional lessons will be available using Dictonetics™ and Comprehension.
