Teaching the Spoken Language: An Approach Based on the Analysis of Conversational English (Cambridge Language Teaching Library)by Gillian Brown
Synopses & Reviews
Teaching the Spoken Language is about teaching the spoken language. It presents in a highly accessible form the results of the author's important research on teaching and assessing effective spoken communication. The authors examine the nature of spoken language and how it differs from written language both in form and purpose. A large part of it is concerned with principles and techniques for teaching spoken production and listening comprehension. An important chapter deals with how to assess spoken language. The principles and techniques described apply to the teaching of English as a foreign and second language, and are also highly relevant to the teaching of the mother tongue.
After a description of the features of spoken English, this text considers how they differ from the features of written language. The text describes practical techniques for teaching listening comprehension and speaking, which apply to ESL and foreign languages as well as English.
