  • Learners need plenty of opportunity to practise their developing skills. At this level, the activities that provide these opportunities need to be well-structured so that learners are supported and don’t get frustrated. They also need to be meaningful. And, of course, they should involve reading real texts.
  • Learners should know what skills they are practising: activities should be purposeful. This also applies to reading in order to build “mileage”.
