Intro (“Getting Started”) of WorkLife English Grammar 3: An Immigration Story, pages 1-4.
Who It’s For: (Teachers & Helpers of) High Beginning Learners
Why It’s Useful: Even beyond beginning levels of grammar instruction, participants are likely to want to start out gradually, perhaps by naming things, describing scenes, and giving/getting personal information. A quick vocabulary-directed review of singular/plural nouns + adjectives with forms of be in getting-acquainted activities is likely to suffice, satisfy, and motivate.
What You’ll Do:
 Use given vocabulary in be-sentences to describe scenes from everyday life.
 Use similar and other sentence patterns to tell about yourself and find out about others
