This section is dedicated to the ‘meat’ of the lesson.

With a systems focus (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, discourse), this is when the teacher is giving the most overt language input.

Arriving at this stage early and dealing with it efficiently means the learners will have plenty of time to savour and practise the language.

    Johnny, really appreciate your tips. have been teaching EFL for about 3 years now having been a high school economics teacher b4 that. really love it but recently had students saying that the lessons lacked pace and dynamism. I find a return to the old CELTA basics now I’ve had some experience really helps my technique. Much appreciated. Bill
