Elson, Nicholas
TESL Talk, v17 n1 p171-75 1987
English as a second language teachers should make learners comfortable with the fact that not being understood at times is a natural and expected part of the communication process. Encouragement to understand what lies behind the misunderstandings and what strategies might be employed to ensure continued communication serves learners well on the long road to fluency. (CB)
