    "... in small groups group ..."

    Dictogloss is a language teaching technique that is used to teach grammatical structures, in which students form small groups and summarize a target-language text.[1] First, the teacher prepares a text that contains examples of the grammatical form to be studied.[2] The teacher reads the text to the students at normal speed while they take notes.[2] Students then work in small groups group to prepare a summary of their work using the correct grammatical structures,[1] and finally each group presents their work to the rest of the class. Dictogloss activities encourage learners to focus on the form of their language while also being based in communication, and are used in task-based language teaching.[2]
    As long as I have no an article before the word small, I should pick groups up instead of group, shouldn’t I?

    Thank you.

    Yes. Students should work in small groups.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
