  2. 2. Conditions of use Research shows that students learn best by learning and using language « chunks ». Chunks are meaningful strings of words with a distinct meaning and purpose. This NYTs article is a nice overview. These exercises get students speaking and practicing lexical chunks in a defined situation. They are suitable for intermediate and higher level students. The conversation prompt is on the right. Start there. Then, students use the lexical chunk or expression on the left to respond. Continue in a sequence. Each lesson is focused on a particular language function (purpose). The teacher should model use and the exercise, first by using the language prompt and asking students to naturally respond – choosing a chunk from the list. Not all chunks are appropriate as responses! On subsequent days test students by erasing the chunk and asking them to respond and practice the language function. It’s a unique approach to language learning and teaching, I hope you’ll enjoy these classes. I know your students will. David Deubelbeiss 1. Prompt students. What chunks do they already know and can use well? 2. Whole class. Share the lesson and chunks. Model the communication for students. 3. In small groups or pairs, students practice speaking using the prompt and responding with the language chunk. 4. Extend. Make your own prompts and try to respond. How to “Get TALKing”
