    Question integrating grammar into a skill based lesson

    hello dear teachers !
    i am teaching English for adults at intermediate level , i want to plan a skill based lesson that integrates grammar.
    my lesson plan involves telling the students a story about an adventure i had in a particular country when i was traveling with a group of friends. in that story i should insert examples of the intended structure which i decided too be
    too+adjective+ to-infinitive such as in "it is too cold to go swimming"
    the bottom line is that i need your help to compose such a story. therefore if you can refer me to such a story or help me compose it, I'll be grateful. thanks in advance

    Re: integrating grammar into a skill based lesson

    I would think of it this way: give them an interesting task, with a few rules and a few areas of freedom, in which they must speak and/or write, and you don't have to "integrate grammar" as using the language already necessitates that.

    Please also teach them to use capital letters when they are required.
    I suppose you have to teach yourself this point first.

    Welcome to the forum
    That's a good idea. You can also brainstorm some problems on the board and let them talk about them like: too many insects,rough cliffs, too much pollution etc. They can also end the conversation talking about if they'd like to repeat that experience or not. If not why? Where there too many problems? Willy-nilly they need the structures ( too,too much, too many...).
    Good luck
