Authentic Tasks to Foster Oral Production among English as a Foreign Language Learners
Ramírez Ortiz, Sandra Milena; Artunduaga Cuéllar, Marco Tulio
HOW, v25 n1 p51-68 Jan-Jun 2018
Attaining oral production is a challenge for most English language teachers because most of the strategies implemented in class do not engage students in speaking activities. Tasks are an optimal alternative to engage learners in communicative exchanges. This article presents the results of a qualitative action research study examining the effects of authentic tasks in oral production with a group of tenth graders in a public high school in the south of Colombia. Considering the conclusions of the study teachers are encouraged to use authentic tasks in the classroom to involve students in meaningful learning to foster oral production.
