Explanation is the grammar presentation technique typically used in the ESL classroom when new language structures are introduced. While there is a time and a place for explanations, there are many other techniques with which teachers can present grammar more effectively and memorably. In this video, we will look at demonstrations of five grammar presentation techniques that go beyond the explanations provided in textbooks. We will then compare and contrast the different techniques, based on criteria such as preparation time, challenge for the student, and appropriateness for particular grammar structures.
