Most English teachers feel comfortable teaching a conversation lesson or a lesson that integrates other skills such as listening, reading or writing.

Grammar topics are often taught as if they were not part of the language the students have been practising in an integrated skills lesson. In grammar lessons rules are explained or memorized, written exercises are the focus of the lesson, and the students end up feeling they grasped the rule but they cannot use it when trying to communicate.
