Description

In recent years there has been growing focus on speaking and listening and this text unpicks what is meant by this term and ensures trainees are fully prepared to deliver it. It addresses the development, learning and teaching of speaking and listening and covers key subject knowledge. Speaking and listening as the basis for reading and writing is examined, as is knowledge about talk and teacher talk. The text includes suggestions for teaching activities and ways to assess speaking and listening. Case studies and interactive activities throughout help the reader link theory to practice.
