Assorted Activities for Effective Student Discourse (WS54), Workshop
Being asked to speak in an ESL class can be a daunting task for students. The reasons for hesitating to speak are many. However, reticent speakers, in particular, find it quite traumatizing to be forced to voice their opinions and speak out in front of their peers.
ESL teachers can, however, help build students’ self-confidence and get them to participate in speaking activities by using exciting games and exercises.The workshop will deal with varied time-tested and simple engaging activities that provide students with sufficient input to participate in meaningful discourse with their peers and teachers.
