Making grammar practice meaningful and effective. Presentation at Language World 2021
In a time-limited context for learning languages, what kinds of grammar practice are likely to be most effective? We first present some principles drawn from relevant research. For example, studies have found benefits for activities that ‘trap’ a grammar feature and make form-meaning connections essential to task completion, both in the 'input' (reading and listening) and production (writing and speaking). We then illustrate these principles using activities from NCELP KS3 Spanish, German and French resources.
