Who It’s For: (Teachers & Helpers of) Beginners
Why It’s Useful: Most likely, the purposes of the first be-sentences language learners put together will be to introduce themselves + others and to ask about + name things. To these ends, they’ll need subject pronouns + This/That/These/Those, possessive adjectives, forms of and contractions with be, singular & plural nouns.
What You’ll Do:
 Notice statement, question, and answer patterns with forms of be.
 Use these to meet people in your learning group and to name things around you.
