What is Strategic Competence? There are words, phrases, and conventions that are used as two (or more) speakers engage in the active give-and-take of communicating through conversation. Through extensive step-by-step practice, review and consolidation of techniques for leading and participating in a conversation or discussion, these strategies will help students develop high level communication skills. Discussion Strategies 2nd Edition and Conversation Strategies 3rd Edition, teaches these skills and has been a bestseller for over 15 years with adoptions from universities, high schools and major private language schools. With the assistance of Professor Masahito Watanabe of Yokohama National University, we have prepared free downloadable Japanese teacher’s notes to help teachers become more aware of the importance of teaching strategic competence in the classroom.
