Surveys of English language teachers around the world have reported that teachers find it difficult to make speaking happen. While the need for interaction is frequently acknowledged, educators have reported great difficulty in implementing it successfully in their lessons. This session will look at common misunderstandings about communicative interaction, the teacher’s role in making interaction happen, and practical, evidence-informed solutions to problems teachers may face when trying to get students to communicate in the classroom.
