Everyday Speaking, Social Expressions, Speaking
Beginners level


This lesson contains examples of the Present Simple (I don't know and I don't understand). The grammar of Present simple will not be focused and it's best to treat these as useful expressions. The expressions will be reviewed regularly and situations in the classroom will be highlighted in order for students to use the expressions in a meaningful way.
