Yesterday one of my EFL learners put his grammar on the back burner. He wanted to have a 45 minute conversation class and didn't want to think about how to use grammar when speaking English. I don't think he realized how he was sabotaging his English fluency.
He pointed out that he did not want a grammar lesson but just wanted to talk.
My learner doesn't live in an English speaking country so opportunities for him to speak English socially don't come very often.
