About the talk

Asking questions and obtaining a (correct) answer is not an easy task: quite a lot of interactional work is required from teachers and students to negotiate understanding in the foreign language. This presentation will explore those resources Chilean secondary EFL teachers use to cue responses from their students: both through their voices and their bodies.
