Teaching Communication Strategies.
Ogane, Masakatsu
The teaching of communication strategies to learners of English as a second language is discussed. Definitions of communication strategies are examined, and a working definition is constructed: a technique used to solve problems in reaching a communication goal. The relationships between communication strategies and communicative competence and between communication strategies and learning strategies are considered. Five commonly-used strategies for communication problem-solving (paraphrasing, borrowing from the first language, miming, asking for help, avoiding) are identified, and classroom techniques and specific exercises for teaching them are outlined. The examples offered are intended for teachers of English to Japanese learners. Contains 32 references. (MSE)
