In this episode we chat with Scott Thornbury about model sentences, there are no links as such as we were simply talking about examples from course books and teaching material.
However we do suggest you check out Scott’s Blog where we writes about some of the things we talked about.
And here is S for sentence
Scott mentioned the book he is updating – About Language, it’s well worth a read (even in the old edition)
The end of pod activity was taken from another of Scott’s books…
Ask the groups to share some of the more interesting sentences they created. This activity can be adapted to many structures. Instead of ‘can’, use ‘has/have got’ or ‘is/are going to’ or ‘used to’.
We found this activity in Scott Thornbury’s book simply titled Grammar, published by Oxford University Press in 2005.
