Podcast: Giving Step-by-Step Instructions & Following Procedures

Your students are probably used to listening to you give instructions. But do they know how to give other people step-by-step instructions? They may need to teach a friend how to make something or teach a driver how to get somewhere. Today’s podcast offers some useful expressions and transitions that students can use when asking others to follow step-by-step instructions and procedures. These expressions are taken from our ready-made Functional English lesson plan titled Following Procedures (previously Giving Instructions).

  • Useful Words and Phrases for Offering Feedback and Help
