Have you noticed any issues with your students not knowing ALL FOUR of the following aspects of a word or phrase:

• meaning

• form

• pronunciation 



We can’t really say a learner knows a word or phrase if they don’t know when it is socially OK to use it.

Do you have any fun stories about learner mistakes to do with appropriacy? How did you help them?
