Putting Language into Practice puts grammar points into context. If you and your students would like a change from the old pencil and paper drill sheets, this is the book for you. In addition to reading and writing, your students will also be listening and speaking. This three-book series is a communicative, student centered and empowering approach to language acquisition through interactive, hands-on tasks and activities. Everything you as the instructor need for facilitating dynamic lessons is laid out, step-by-step.

All the material you need for the activity is, photocopiable, ready-to-go and in the book. The students work in pairs or small groups. There are questionnaires, prompt cards, fill-in charts, discussion/interview sheets, flash cards and more. In all there are more than three dozen easy-to-play activities. In addition to grammar points the lessons cover relevant themes.
