A Corpus to Promote Fluency in Group Discussions

K. Kato

Tokai University, Japan

This presentation will introduce a teaching method and materials aimed at helping Japanese students talk among themselves in English as they accomplish group tasks. The unique point of this method is that students wrote down Japanese expressions they wanted to say in English while trying a task-based group project. A native English and Japanese English teacher translated the expressions and made an English corpus for students to practice using in their group speaking tasks over throughout the semester. This activity and materials helps students notice their weak points and learn expressions and strategies for developing pragmatic fluency.
