Using Limerick to support teaching grammar in the EFL classroom

back to The Secrets of ELT 2008

Jon Poynter (Estonia)

Grammar can often be perceived as ‘boring’ or a ‘chore’ for the ESL student. So, why not try to inject a little fun into your grammar classes? In this presentation I aim to show some ways in which might help achieve this, by using the concept of Limerick poetry as a support mechanism. As part of the presentation, delegates will be encouraged to take an active part in the process.
