Activity 2.3 - Objectives

Theme: Use of Educational Technology to improve learners grammar knowledge

Learning Objectives

After finishing this learning activity, my learners should be able to:

  • hypothesize using appropriate structures to increase their IELTS score in writing and speaking;
  • tell about past events by employing right narrative tenses to make it easier for the examiner to follow their story in Speaking Part 2;
  • improve spelling verbs with -ed; -s; -es; -ing ending;
  • employ infinitives and gerunds more accurately in writing and speaking; 
  • generally minimize grammar mistakes in writing and speaking


  1. The objectives are clear but they are very specific, ie targeting specific grammar structure. I presume the choice of these structures is dictated by the needs analysis/error analysis and I presume all the three groups (as explained in the previous post) are represented here?

  2. Hi Ania. These are the main problems that my all my learners have. This list comes from analysing recordings of their speaking and their writing. Ideally I would love to have most grammar covered, but that's quite a long-term goal.

  3. Thanks for the clarification Anna - this makes complete sense to me. It's better to start small and address the most basic issues first and then build on that!
