Classroom Language: The language of spontaneous situations

If we use English in spontaneous situations:
- We relate the target language to the learner's immediate environment.
- We take advantage of spontaneous situations to use the target language.
- We exploit contexts which are not directly linked to the syllabus (language in use).

Here are some common situations in which spontaneous English can be used:

Happy birthday!
 Many returns (of the day).
 “” has his/her 12th birthday today.
 “” is eleven today. Let's sing "Happy

 Best of luck.
 Good luck.
 I hope you pass.
 Congratulations!

 Well done!
 Who's not here today?
 Who isn't here?

 What's wrong with ... today?
 I'm sorry (about that).
 Sorry, that was my fault.
 I'm terribly sorry.
 Excuse me.

 Could I get past please?
 You're blocking the way.
 I can't get past you.
 Get out of the way, please.

 I hope you all have a good Christmas.
 Happy New Year!
 All the best for the New Year.
 Happy Easter.

 Hard lines!
 Never mind.
 Better luck next time.
 Do you feel better today?  Are you better now?
 Have you been ill?
 What was the matter?
 Excuse me for a moment.
 I'll be back in a moment.
 Carry on with the exercise while I'm

 I've got to go next door for a moment.
 I'm afraid I can't speak any louder.
 I seem to be losing my voice.
 I have a sore throat.
 I have a headache.
 I'm feeling under the weather.
 Do you mind if I sit down?
