Different ways of saying the same thing!!!

How do you? Hi! How're things? What's up? Hello! These are some ways of greeting in English. It's important to know that there are different ways of saying the same thing in English. If the IELTS listening tape has a speaker by the name of Alistair Onassis and she's Greek, the question could be phrased, " Alistair Onassis is a __________of Greece." The obvious answer is "native."

The truth is some ESL learners expect the question to be worded the same way that they hear on the tape. For this reason it would be advisable for IELTS trainers to prepare students for different expressions of the same thing.

I teach an ESL class and I agree that our students need to know different ways to say the same things but do you know of any resources that teach this skill?
