Plenary: Teaching Fluency for Speaking and Listening

James Dean Brown, University of Hawai'i at Manoa

This presentation will focus on the evolution of my awareness of the importance to fluency of teaching connected speech forms in ESL/EFL classrooms including my recent efforts to compile the literature on the topic and formulate the principles underlying connected speech forms including word stress, utterance stress and timing, elisions, reductions, insertions, intrusions, simple transitions, assimilations, contractions, and combinations of all of the above. In the latter part of the presentation, I will discuss some of the most prominent principles necessary for teaching each of the above.

BIO: James Dean (JD) Brown is Professor of Second Language Studies at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. He has spoken and taught courses in more than thirty countries ranging from Brazil to Yugoslavia. He has also published numerous journal articles and book chapters (on language testing, curriculum design, research methods, and program evaluation) and authored or co-authored numerous books (on reading statistical language studies, language curriculum, language testing, language testing in Japan, testing L2 pragmatics, performance testing, criterion-referenced language testing, using surveys in language programs, doing research, language test development, ideas for classroom assessment, connected speech, and heritage language curriculum).
