Chatting is the immediate and easy methodology to accomplish the tongue in the international language . English as an international language of communication is quite hard to converse particularly in developing countries for so many reasons. Under such an uncondusive environment, it is an uphill task to develop fluency for the beginners in the language. Keeping the fact in mind, chatting has been found out as an effective foundation technique to develop the fluency.
To accomplish the learners’ tongue in English
In Indian classrooms where the class strength is around 40, chatting works out a wonder. The first 20 minutes of the class can be left for chatting between two partners as a motivator, by which they converse in english better and contribute in other modules like roleplays, sentence games, talk shows etc.
Any general topic of interest is offered to student pairs
- How do you prepare tea
- Daily routines
- Future plans
The students may be encouraged to speak with a minimum possible fluency. At the initial stage much emphasis on correct usage of grammar need not be made. However, in due course it must be ensured that fluency is coped with correct usage of parts of speech.
In the global scenario, chatting can be used in classrooms as a booster pack for non-native speakers of English.In this context I would like to raise the following questions
1. Have you tried chatting in your classroom at the initial level? if so narrate your experiences?
2. If not, What are the other methods do you use in your classrooms to develop oral fluency?
