Chiba JALT:

Creating Confident Creative Conversationalists With Communication Circles

Date: Sunday, June 22nd, 2003 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Thomas C. Anderson

This presentation will begin with an examination of four problem areas that exist for EFL teachers in Japan. We will then turn to communication circles, an easy to organize activity which has become the cornerstone of the presenter's Oral English classes. Functions and the effects of using communication circles will be examined. Variations and evaluation/testing will also be discussed. Audience participation/discussion will be warmly encouraged. Thomas C. Anderson has taught in various venues in Japan for nearly twenty years and is currently teaching at three different Kanto area universities.
