This is a step by step process to help students discover colocations in English. It could be done individually or collaboratively. The learners are encouraged to notice, ask questions, make hypotheses, and test them. The teacher remains as a guide on the side and a consciousness-raiser.
This lesson is based on the Noticing approach.Therefore, students:
1. Read a paragraph and answer a comprehension questions (noticing)
2. study how the words in their answers to the comprehension questions collocate with one another (consciousness-raising).
3. do some matching and gap filling (practice)
