    Default Help for an assignment

    Hi, I am working on a course assignment and I need some help. It says:

    You have provided your pre-intermediate class with plenty of speaking and writing practice. However, your class of 15 adults is always asking you for more grammar. At first you were unhappy about this and told them that learning to speak the language did not just involve learning grammar. However, they have continued to ask for more grammar. How can you best deal with this situation? Provide no less than 200 words.

    The obvious answer seems to be ''give them more grammar''. However, that doesn't take 200 words and somehow I feel that might be wrong. I have no teacher experience to rely on and I would really welcome some help. Thank you!

    Welcome to th forum, Shi Aina.

    We like to help when we can, but it is forum poicy not to help with homework assignments. Your trainers/tutors/supervisors want your ideas, not ours.

    Try discussing it with your fellow trainees/students. If you really have no idea at all, ask your trainer for some pointers.

    If that is your answer, then you could back it up by justifying your case, which would allow your tutors to see your reasoning and get closer to 200 words.
