The Grammar of Vocabulary
(this page is a duplicate of OOYS to use it as a template)
Out of Your Seats is a book of practical, interactive and creative teaching activities for all levels and ages that get learners, well, out of their seats. It offers a wide range of productive and receptive language experiences that enrich the learning in English as a Foreign Language classrooms. Teachers may adapt any of the activities or lessons with their own content as they also function as templates.
Through short, reassuring, collaborative activities, learners subconsciously develop a wide range of competences. The activities provide teachers with content, procedures, examples and functional language.
Full lessons take activities as their core and integrate skills and systems. The learners engage in language exploration and consolidation through creative, confidence-building, interactive and reflective activity.
