The lessonsare grouped into five sections:

Section1: Sequencing ActivitiesLearners work together to reconstruct narratives, compositions and letters, using link words and phrasesto help them. In some casesthey also have to make choices of tense and grammaticalisethe sentences before they put them in order.

Section2: Matching ActivitiesLearners read out sentenceheads and tails to each other and try to reach agreementon possibleand probable matches. Learnerspractisecombining words into word partnerships and clauses into sentences.

Section3: Rephrasing ActivitiesLearners reformulate sentences using important grammar patterns such as modal and reporting verbs.

Section4: Completion ActivitiesLearners use both real-world knowledge and structural awarenessto complete sentences logically and grammatically. Acceptabilityof the completedsentences negotiatedwithin the is gr o up .

Section5: Dictation ActivitiesLearners listen to the teacher or a partner reading out sentences which contain important word partnerships.They note down important partnerships. Areas coveredinclude common verbs such as do, haue, and take, phrasalverbs and prepositionalphrases.

So too is discoursegrammar, an awarenessof how sentences linked are together into paragraphs and whole texts. \lord and discoursegrammar focused on in Instant Grammar Lessonsinclude: : word partnerships or collocations: balanced diet, fatal accident common verbs used in many word partnerships: have and get, give and take contextualized phrasal verbs: look forward to (an event),get over (a bad experience) reporting verbs and their grammar: agree that, d,oubt uhether, ask about prepositionalphrases: at first, in particular,on purpose sequencingand linking expressions: after a while, a few weeks before, on the whole
