Talk Time student book 2 : Everyday English Conversation

Yunson Shin

Abstract


Talk Time is an American ESL book for promoting communicative proficiency for beginning to intermediate students. Interactive and communicative activities such as information gap tasks promote the fluency in collaborative activities and task-based language learning. Interactive activities induce pushed output, the negotiation of meaning, and allow students to develop automaticity. Extensive communicative activities help students use grammar rules implicitly. This book is a good source for promoting communicative skills, yet supplementary reading materials could help to activate schema and improve language learning. Additional activities such as pretask activities and cultural content could help make language learning more effective.
