|標題||“Tell me more: Effective Communication Strategies for the Japanese Student” (book review). (2011).|
|出版社・発行元||The Language Teacher (TLT)|
|概要||Unlike the vast number of speaking and conversation textbooks available today where the
primary goal is to use the target language in a given situation to perform a specific task, Tell Me More: Effective Communication Strategies for the Japanese Student provides students, in addition to target language, with opportunities for learning and using conversation strategies, a type of language learning strategy, in order to overcome breakdowns in communication in everyday, real-life situations. Tell Me More is a skills-based speaking and listening textbook, which aims at using students existing knowledge, vocabulary, and overall English communicative competence (including grammatical, sociolinguistic, strategic, and discourse competence) while promoting both confidence and skills in natural, authentic situations. The textbook is written for an EFL audience, specifically for Japanese university and adult learners who have studied English in the past but lack certain conversation strategies.
