Using Dialogs and Role-Play to Build Conversation Confidence
Conversation can be very intimidating for English language learners. Students worry about what they will say and if they will be able to understand their conversation partner. Dialogs provide students with the opportunity to practice the skills in a safe environment before trying it in the real world. Dialogs help students practice complex sentence structures and verb tenses, idioms and expressions, or new vocabulary. They can also help students role-play real life scenarios they may face in their day-to-day lives. Join Steven as he explores the use of dialogs in the ESOL classroom to help students build confidence in their conversation skills.
