Skills circuits: Recycling language

They provide a change to coursebook activities allowing learners to work together to recycle grammar or vocabulary and share knowledge. Careful planning of both materials used in the circuit is required as well as attention to the timing of the activity itself.

Below you can download an example skills circuit with a suggested procedure.
