Hendrickson, James M.
A description is presented of forty classroom-tested activities for motivating students to practice listening comprehension and speaking skills in any foreign language. Some of the activities include practical suggestions and follow-up activities. All the activities are preceded by a statement of purpose, categorized by proficiency levels (beginning, intermediate, and advanced), and grouped under three subheadings: (1) tete-a-tete conversations, (2) small group interactions, and (3) whole class activities. The table of contents is arranged to provide a cross-reference to each communication activity. A list of sources is included. (Author/AMH)
