Best of NTC: Grammar activities Network Now A1

Teaching tip

Practice makes perfect. Übung macht den Meister. Whatever the language, it’s well known that the more you practise something, the better you will be. Especially with grammar!

 

Although it’s sensible to do practice exercises and activities immediately after learning any new grammar, don’t forget to revisit grammar from earlier lessons so that students are reminded of what they know. It will also give students a chance to consolidate and refresh their knowledge.

Previously in the Network Teachers’ Club we provided you with grammar activities on the A1 level. If you would like to look again at these activities, click on the box ‘Grammar activities Now A1’.

If you would like to use a couple of more fun and communicative grammar activities for A2 and B1 students, then please read on below.
