In the digital age, rapid developments in information and communication technologies are having a dramatic impact on the way that information is processed, how knowledge is produced, and how learning occurs.
This presentation discusses the role of task complexity for developing L2 speaking skills in terms of fluency, accuracy and complexity.
The talk will discuss research on what fluency in speaking English is, how it can be developed, and how much time is required to develop it. The talk will combine research results and examples.
We will be presenting a Teacher Workshop, equipping teachers to utilize and incorporate drama in the classroom. We base our workshop on our ELCP – English Language Communication Program that we are using in schools for ESL students.
Games, with their rules and repetitiveness, provide the perfect scaffolding for language practice. In addition, learners get to be creative and take chances in an emotional environment; in other words, they have the opportunity to make the target language their own. Participants in this workshop will explore half a dozen commercial board games for their potential use in their own classrooms.
Participants will be lead through the creation of a curriculum-based study progress guide incorporating can-do statements and goal-setting and self-reflection activities, all key in helping students develop as motivated, self-directed learners.
