It gives 9 sequences of activities which provide an account of the authors' experience of addressing these problems and the techniques which they used.
The book shows how to make language learning relevant to the students' own experience. It explains how to stimulate creativity and encourages students to learn both independently and co-operatively, whilst developing social skills at the same time. All the sequences in the book can be followed as described adapted to other content or referred to as a source of individual activities. The "Pilgrim Resource Books" aim to provide a range of practical lessons in recipe format. They are written by experienced English language teachers.
