The lesson plan

Lesson 1


Unit I


According to the Communicative Approach we are including grammar part for self-study, but from the experience of our educational system we strongly recommend a specific attention on a grammar approach in a cognitive way. Here are some points to support it:

  1. Huge difference between grammar structures of Russian and English (different branches);
  2. Multileveled groups (from beginners to intermediate);
  3. Low level of English at school (especially grammar skills);

4. Lack of practice.

Sometimes (11%), Russian is not a mother language for learners (multinational country), so it takes more efforts to get the purpose – students have to do double transfer (via their mother tongue).
