Tactics for Better High School Language Learning
Date: Sunday, February 20th, 2005 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Speaker: Karl O'Callaghan, Oxford University Press
In daily life, we listen twice as much as we speak and four times as much as we write. Unfortunately, as important as this skill is, Japanese high school students are rarely trained beyond the simple level of listening for specific information. Karl O'Callaghan, ELT Consultant for Oxford University Press, will open this presentation with some ice-breaking activities, followed by an overview of the listening process. He will then move on to sampling a few listening activities and exercises designed to give teenage learners tactics for listening that will encourage them to become better thinkers and thus better language learners.
