ESOL Lr/E3.2d

Listen for grammatical detail (i) Recognise questions, statements and instructions (ii) Know that different kinds of utterance have different kinds of features in terms of phonology and structure, and use this knowledge to help with understanding (iii) Identify key grammatical features appropriate to the level (e.g. past continuous, used to) and to genre, and notice the meaning implied by the use of different structures (e.g. the past continuous is often used to set the scene for the main action) (iv) Identify familiar grammatical structures and understand that they may differ in form from their equivalent in formal writing, e.g. contracted forms, ellipsis (v) Become aware that listening and noticing grammatical forms - and the way they are used in context - can be a useful way to increase knowledge of grammar, as it is used in spoken English.
