FOSTERING ORAL FLUENCY AND SPONTANEITY IN THE LANGUAGE CLASSROOM
Online workshop with Dr. Gianfranco Conti
Tuesday 29 September 2020
After outlining the cognitive bases of oral fluency and the challenges of oral production, Dr Conti will provide a principled approach to the achievement of fluency and spontaneity in the classroom which integrates the extensive processing of comprehensible input (through listening and reading) with highly structured oral activities and communicative tasks. For each of the key stages in the E.P.I. framework, he will illustrate their rationale and practical implementation, providing a wide range of instructional strategies and tasks.
