Simpler forms = Presented at first Complex forms = Learned as students get more proficient Reintroduction of functions = As students progress in proficiency Requests = From 'Would you ...?' to 'I wonder if you would mind ...'

Match the following with their role in understanding written text:

Cohesive devices = Bind and order sentences together Coherence = Ensures meaningful connection between sentences Discourse level analysis = Recognizing sentence relationships Scrambled order recognition = Identifying lack of coherence

Match the following with their importance in communication:

Negotiation in oral communication = Between speaker and listener Meaning derived from written word = Through interaction between reader and writer Oral communication process = Involves negotiation for mutual understanding Written communication process = Relies on interaction for meaning extraction

Match the following teaching approach with its description:

CLT = Permits judicious use of students' native language Communicative activities = Utilizes target language for explanation and homework assignments Evaluation = Includes assessing both accuracy and fluency of students Error correction = Tolerates form errors during fluency-based activities

Match the following assessment method with its purpose:

Integrative test = Has a real communicative function Writing a letter to a friend = Assesses students' writing skill Informal evaluation = Done by the teacher as an advisor or co-communicator Error noting during fluency activities = Errors are returned to later for accuracy-based activities
