119 Secret Skills for Teaching Dialogues in English
How can we allow students to use the vocabulary and sentence patterns they have learned and communicate effectively in any situation? Is recitation and role-play in the classroom what leads the students to our teaching goals?
The main goal in learning English is “communication,” communication with English-speakers, and speakers of other languages in the world so that we can not only understand them, but can also communicate our message. The teaching of dialogue focuses mainly on speaking, on not just grammar, but also on providing with authentic English situations so that students can acquire English naturally.
