The Teacher and the Conversational Situation
Fenn, Peter
Englisch, 12, 4, 128-33, 77
Cites a typical classroom "pseudo-conversation," showing how German students of English sound stiff and clumsy when conversing with English-speaking partners. This is blamed partly on the teacher's behavior. The example is then expanded into a "communicative exchange." In teaching conversation, manner is seen as more important than matter. (IFS/WGA)
