PPP (present, practice, produce; or presentation, practice, production) is a lesson planning paradigm.
It basically consists of teacher-presented material, that is, language items to be learnt, followed by a controlled practice stage, in which students are "permitted" to apply the new language/skill in a low-risk context. Finally, in the production stage, also called the 'free practice' stage, students do some sort of communication task, such as a role play, which requires them to produce the target language.
