Intermediate. (E2) level


I will teach the students a vocabulary system. They will learn about Prefixes: their meanings and how to use them. I will base my explanation on a short paragraph and a reading text from "Language Leader" book. At the end, there will be a controlled practice through answering exercises in the book, and there will be a freer practice vis a speaking activity.
