Nagasaki JALT:

Psychology Games for Language Learning.

Date: Saturday, March 3rd, 2007 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Ian Munby, Hokkai Gakuen University, Sapporo

Communicative tasks for language practice or fluency training play an important role in the language classroom but they often lead to "so what?" outcomes. This presentation will introduce some communicative tasks for learners of all ages and levels with surprising or amusing outcomes which purport to reveal something about our personalities and values. Training in these strategies provides a basis for further language practice and further active and personal learner involvement in classroom communication. The presenter will also suggest how such tasks can be structured around a TBLL (task-based language learning) model of second language acquisition and lesson procedure. All welcome for Nagasaki JALT's second meeting of the year!
