These days we’re learning how to use verb patterns and trying to practise enough so as to remember them better.
It is surely one of the most demanding parts of English and it seems that learners are unaware of how to learn them easily.
Some students suggested their own ideas about how to make the most of the time they spend revising the commonest verb patterns, and here are a few examples that were discussed:
- Spotting examples in songs.
- Doing guided production: creating their own examples and sentences:
- Noticing them more and paying attention when you come across one in a text, whether oral or written.
