Developing Interactional Competence by Using TV Series in "English as an Additional Language" Classrooms
Sert, Olcay
Online Submission, Enletawa Journal, n2 23-50 2009
This paper uses a combined methodology to analyse the conversations in supplementary audio-visual materials to be implemented in language teaching classrooms in order to enhance the Interactional Competence (IC) of the learners. Based on a corpus of 90.000 words (Coupling Corpus), the author tries to reveal the potentials of using TV series in "English as an Additional Language" (EAL) Classrooms by employing the methods of Conversation Analysis (CA) and Corpus Linguistics (CL). The paper specifically focuses on hyperbole in interaction through uncovering conversational sequences and embodied actions. The findings clearly show that the use of TV series can be an invaluable resource for language teachers by exposing learners to multi-model texts that contextualise the materials used through various interactional and semiotic, as well as linguistic, resources. (Contains 8 figures, 3 tables, and 8 screenshots.)
