Description: To meet the needs of students, teachers of oral English have three main tasks: find out all they can about how speaking works, look for ways to introduce their classes to the language of conversation, and provide students with opportunities to practice speaking English. This book covers these three tasks in an easy-to-follow guide that language teachers will find very practical for their own contexts. Topics covered are language forms in conversation, conversations in real-world contexts, how to teach and assess speaking effectively, and the challenges of teaching speaking communicatively. Teaching Speaking is a valuable addition to the literature in our profession. About the English Language Teacher Development Series, Thomas S. C. Farrell, Series Editor: What is the latest research, and how do I use it in my classroom? The pressure is intense for language teachers to update their knowledge in curriculum trends, research, theory and practice, technology, or assessment. The need to update is certainly not a reflection of inadequately trained teachers but is due to the nature of a profession that continuously reinvents itself. The English Language Teacher Development Series is a set of short resource books written in a jargon-free and accessible manner for all types of teachers of English (native and nonnative speakers of English, experienced and novice teachers). The Series offers a theory-to-practice approach, a variety of practical methods, and time for reflections that allow teachers to interact with the materials presented. The books can be used in preservice settings, in-service courses, and by individuals looking for ways to refresh their practice.
