They acquire their knowledge of fundamental grammatical structures and functions (e.g. sentence types, tenses, voice, parts of speech, word order, expressing possibility, obligation, necessity, prohibition, criticism; expressing preferences, making assumptions; asking for/ refusing/giving permission; making offers, sugestions, etc.) They acquire their fundamental vocabulary to fulfill the above mentioned functions in roles, topics and discussions.
The students are taught to be able to converse on different topics (people, jobs, places to visit, festivals/celebrations, disasters/accidents, eating habits, sports/hobbies, environment, education, entertainment, transport, crime, etc.).
The students learn to understand spoken language. Listening texts include monologues and interacting speakers. They are taught to focus on understanding the gist, the main points, look for detail or specific information, deduce the meaning.
The students are offered adapted/instructional reading material and are encouraged to learn to use different strategies for different reading purposes: identifying the main points in a text, looking for detail, locating specific information in a text, understanding a text structure, etc.
