He will also explore video recording, story outlines, scripts, and pair conversations as ways to develop four language skills. Next, Tomoko Maekawa, also of Nagasaki University, will explain the whys and the hows of her experience producing a four skill ELT textbook two years ago, and will speak about its usage and results in different kinds of classes at varying levels.
