Learning to speak and listen with confidence in a foreign language is the job of a lifetime. An integrated whole language approach promotes the development of speaking and listening as intimately connected, rather than individual mechanistic and separate activities (Andrews, R. 2001). Therefore, the contexts in which speaking and listening takes place are crucially important for its holistic development. ‘Speak, Listen, Laugh!’ will focus on five principle contexts for the acquisition of speaking and listening skills in an EFL context - talk and discussion, play and games, story, improvised drama and poetry. What better way is there to enhance children’s English abilities than through a variety of stimulating, interactive contexts?
