Teaching ESL/EFL Listening and Speaking
This guide for teachers and teacher trainees provides a wealth of suggestions for helping learners at all levels of proficiency develop their listening and speaking skills and fluency, using a framework based on principles of teaching and learning. By following these suggestions, which are organised around four strands—meaning-focused input, meaning-focused output, language-focused learning, and fluency development—teachers will be able to design and present a balanced programme for their students.
Updated with cutting-edge research and theory, the second edition of Teaching ESL/EFL Listening and Speaking retains its hands-on focus and engaging format, and features new activities and information on emerging topics, including:
- Two new chapters on Extensive Listening and Teaching Using a Course Book
- Expanded coverage of key topics, including assessment, pronunciation, and using the internet to develop listening and speaking skills
- Easy-to-implement tasks and suggestions for further reading in every chapter
- More tools for preservice teachers and teacher trainers, such as a sample unit, a "survival syllabus", and topic prompts
The second edition of this bestselling book is an essential text for all Certificate, Diploma, Masters, and Doctoral courses for teachers of English as a second or foreign language.
