When Is a Speaking Activity Successful? Here’s What the Teacher Should Do

successful speaking activity

For any speaking activity to succeed, students need to:

  • Acknowledge that there is a real reason for asking a question or giving a piece of information.

Therefore, the teacher should make sure the activities he presents to the pupils provide a reason for speaking, whether this is to play a game or to find out real information about friends in the class.

  • Speak as much English as possible without interfering to correct the mistakes that they will probably make.

Therefore, the teacher should treat errors casually by praising the utterance and simply repeating it correctly without necessarily highlighting the errors.

  • Be praised for just speaking

Therefore, the teacher should always offer praise for the effort of speaking regardless of the accuracy of the English produced.
