Learning English for LIFE-Communicative Projects

Last week I gave a mini-project to my students. They are studying at the prep school and what they need is not grammar. They say that they had been taught grammar in detail for many years however they could not USE the language (which is the basic aim) to COMMUNICATE.

We watched their recordings at the class and we designed an activity out of it. This must be a teacher's ultimate happiness, I think.
