This stage provides greater opportunities for learners to use English for purposeful and live communication both inside and outside the classroom.
In authentic communication you can encounter meanings and expressions for which you haven't learnt the most appropriate language. You will need to use communication strategies, like guessing the meaning of unknown words from the context, asking for the meaning to be clarified or using paraphrase to get an idea across.
This is where you will make more errors and it is very important that you take the risks without fear of getting it wrong and use all the language and communication strategies you can find. This way you build some skills on using the grammar you learnt at school in your own way and this is what gives you the courage to step forward with your communication, both during the particular situation in hand and in future situations.

Lots of lessons: cause & effect, comparisons, linking signals, relative clauses, presenting information, expressing emotions and grammar games, of course. We had more lessons on: intensifying adverbs and phrasal verbs, expressing various concepts such as addition, exception, restriction and ambiguity. Lately we started some exercises: likes/dislikes, frequency adverbs (twice), verb tenses, etc.
