Teacher and Professional Development Conversation-Based Learning: We Use Partners, Not Grammar more

Sun, Nov 14, 12:05-12:30 Asia/Tokyo

Grammar-based learning tries to prevent 10,000 mistakes and then measures ability by how many mistakes you make. It’s like the diet industry: it seems logical that it would work, but the success rate is 2%. Conversation-based learning is all conversations and conversation tests, and students find and fix their own mistakes. In short, students write what they will say, talk about what they wrote, transcribe what they said, and fix their own mistakes.
