College & University Education
Sun, Nov 22, 12:50-13:50 JST

This workshop will introduce a teaching method informed by skills acquisition theory designed to help students develop speaking fluency in a series of scaffolded steps that lead them from simple question/answer drills to the goal of being able to engage in an unrehearsed conversation for several minutes. The length of the conversation and level of abstraction of topics is relative to students’ initial level.
