Group work is when the learners work together on a task or activity in groups.
Learners in threes, a class separated into two, and an open class, are all examples of groups.
In the classroom
Group work increases the opportunities for all learners to speak the new language, it allows them to learn from each other, and frees the teacher to monitor individuals and give them feedback. Examples of typical group work activities include ranking discussions, jigsaw activities, project work group and group writing tasks.
