Teaching Language as Oral Communication: Everyday Life Performance in Foreign Language Instruction.
Stringer, Jeffrey L.
Communication Education, v47 n3 p221-33 Jul 1998
Examines the effects of Everyday Life Performance (ELP) (in which students speak in unison with tape recordings of naturally occurring conversations, using transcriptions as memory aids) on English-speaking college students enrolled in Spanish classes. Shows that students who have rehearsed an ELP over a six-week period reduced their errors in pronunciation, grammar, and fluency. (SR)
