A Suggestion for Teaching the Construction of "X of What (Y) + All +Z" in the Process of TCSL

Abstract

The construction of "X of What (Y) + All +Z" generally appears in speaking and listening TCSL textbooks and some reading materials. In most cases, it is not listed in those textbooks as a key expression and more likely to be shown together with other similar constructions. However, foreign students tend to make mistakes when using it. This paper designs a teaching plan of the construction by using the "construction-chunk" teaching method, and puts forward some suggestions for teaching from the aspects of teaching materials, teachers and students.
