Receptive/Productive Skill Development Using Case Studies and a Video Method.
A course in English for business administration using the case study method is described. The course is designed for graduate students and makes use of a common technique for analyzing and solving business problems. The approach is aimed at improving both oral and writing skills in English through small group discussion and written analysis. A central part of the course is the practice of videotaping discussions for feedback to improve fluency. The selection of case types for effective learning is discussed. It is proposed that the approach could be adapted easily for teaching academic or general English as a second language. (MSE)
