Developing Oral Proficiency in Adults Learning English (ELL-U)
Participants in this virtual study circle will read and discuss recent research on the interactions, corrective feedback techniques, and instructional activities that are effective in helping adults learn to communicate orally in English. Participants will work together to consider practical applications in their own classes. Study circle activities will encourage teachers to examine the quantity and quality of student talk in their classrooms. This reflective process will help teachers understand how simple adjustments to patterns of classroom interaction can result in significant improvements in students’ oral proficiency.
