Product description

Teaching Speaking: A Holistic Approach introduces teachers to the theory and practice of teaching speaking.

Teaching Speaking A Holistic Approach brings together theoretical and pedagogical perspectives on teaching speaking within a coherent methodological framework. The framework combines understandings derived from several areas of speaking research and instruction. By explaining, interpreting, evaluating, and synthesizing these diverse perspectives from linguistics and language learning, the text offers a comprehensive and versatile approach for teaching speaking. Different types of learning tasks are explained and illustrated with examples, and each chapter includes short tasks and ends with a number of tasks that enable readers to extend their ideas.

Key features

  • Example lesson outlines and activities illustrate the suggested principles and techniques and help teachers with lesson planning.
  • Short tasks within each chapter, encourage readers to apply and evaluate the information presented.
  • Group learning tasks at the end of each chapter enable readers to internalize the concepts and ideas.
