Assertive Communication for Foreign Languages.
Walz, Joel
The wide assortment of books and seminars on assertiveness training shows a growing desire among people to learn how to express their feelings. This paper attempts to adapt many of these techniques to the foreign language classroom. Sixteen activities which enable students to practice communication are proposed. They encompass all levels of ability, and they involve all four language skills. The teacher does not become a therapist but rather a leader (and participant) in expressing ideas in the target language. It is hoped that this will make the classroom a more realistic environment and that the student will have a natural outlet for the structure he or she has acquired. (Author)
