Kobe JALT:

Developing Fluency: Practical Suggestions for Modifying Discussion Activities

Date: Sunday, February 17th, 2002 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: William Lawrenz, Osaka Jyogakuin Junior College

There will be two presentations today.
Discussion classes at Osaka Jyogakuin Junior College provide an excellent opportunity for students to expand their English speaking skills using a variety of new and challenging topics. Most TESOL teachers would agree that the first step toward developing greater fluency begins with practice. Repetition or recycling of material during class sessions is a key factor in helping students become familair with any new language items being presented. But how can instructors keep learner interest and motivation high while at the same time providing the necessary repetitions? This presentation explores practical techniques that can be applied to almost any lesson material to add variety, thus meeting the need for practice while keeping atudents actively engaged and interested.
