They may contain listening and speaking activities and 

concentrate on introducing new language items or on 

revision. The

actual content of any lesson will depend on what the 

teacher aims to achieve during the lesson, the students and the

teaching situation. Howe ver there are some ideas that can 

be considered for every lesson.

Students who are interested in, involved in and enjoy what 

they are studying tend to make better progress and learn

Jeremy Harmer, author of The Practice of English Language

Engaged students learn better and are likely to cause fewer

discipline problems.
