431. Our aim: authentic communication, as you know



Here you go with a note I typed May 28, 2004, during my doctorate research. The quotation is from very useful OXFORD, Rebecca (1990) Language Learning Strategies. What Every Teacher Should Know. Boston: Heinle & Heinle Publishers. After that is a comment by me. / Photo from smart-board-600i-interactive-whiteboard-photo www ivci com



“The language teaching profession was still not ready for much real communication.” (x; the underlining is ours). We as teachers, as well, should foster real communication and not just always simulation. Think for instance of the warm-ups or warmers we practice at the beginning of the class: they usually deal with real things of thei students’ lives.
