each other,one another
 
Hi colleagues,
   Each other and one another express reciprocity . Are they used the same way ? I haven t found anything about it in our fabulous site . Can you help me with links or worksheets? Thanks in advance.

We normally use "each other" when we re talking about two people.
eg:Tom and Janet love each other
We use"one another" to talk about a group of people(two or more).
eg:The group of students ask one another questions.
"One another" sounds more formal when used to mean two people.
Hope it s clear

It all depends on the level of your students.
To practise the expression"each other",Just give them a while and make them think about what two good friends do to/for each other.You can prompt some verbs.
To practice "one another",just ask them why we aren t happy with the world today:
People hate,betray,cheat..........one another.What should we do to make it a better place? Students will come up with a lot of interesting ideas.
Cheers
