Lr/L2.2d Listen for grammatical detail
- identify key grammatical features appropriate for the level, e.g. mixed passive and active voice, participle phrases, the use of pre- and post-modification
- understand that certain grammatical features are likely to occur in certain spoken genres
- recognise grammatical forms that are unlikely to occur in writing, e.g. dramatic present
- understand that listening and noting features of both standard and non-standard grammar can be a useful way to develop knowledge of English
Example: Listen for and identify: • tense • active or passive voice • participle phrases in, e.g., a sports commentary: … and here’s McKenna running up the midfield, he passes to Webster who’s tackled by Ribeiro, but Wales continue to move forward. James to Anderson, Anderson a lovely ball, which is intercepted, and now it’s Portugal on the attack, and a foul … a late foul. Anderson is down, he was tackled off the ball and he’s lying on the ground, writhing in agony. My word, that was a nasty one.
