Following Procedures

Functional English

Low Int – Int

Students review language and useful expressions for giving and following step-by-step instructions and describing a process. They also review imperative verbs and adverbs of manner. For extended learning, there is also an optional introduction to modals of advice and necessity (should).

Note: We recommend using this lesson after our beginner-level Functional English lesson on Following Instructions. Review and assessment tasks are available at the end of this lesson. Your students will watch a video to answer the questions.
