Teacher B said to teacher A, “Up to some extent speaking is the main language skill when learning a foreign or second language.
Or if you prefer, up to some extent that skill ought to be the mainly practiced skill.
You know a language when you can speak fluently, I would dare say.
In classes of English both students and the teacher should speak a lot.
First words, then sentences or phrases for instance as a reply, and thirdly and pretty important, speaking for long more or less: describing pictures, saying the meaning of a word, a spontaneous conversation that comes up in class between the teacher and a student.” / Photo from: Family Meal Time. healthykidstoday org
