Recently, I've taken over a group of intermediate students. The previous teacher went on a sick leave.
The problem is that they are all assigned to an intermediate course but when we do different excersises they really struggle. They speak like elementary students. Sometimes have problems with making one correct sentence:/

How can I help them improve their language skills? I still have to continue with the course book, but would also like to give them some excersises to help them speak better

any suggestions would be highly appreciated
