Book Information

   

Title: Fluency and Its Teaching
Written By: Marie-Noëlle Guillot
Series Title: Modern Languages in Practice No. 11
Description:

We can all recognize fluency and practise to be fluent, but do not understand what linguistic and paralinguistic operations are involved. This book tries to solve this puzzle. It begins by exploring perceptions of fluency to understand their common denominators. It goes on to pinpoint the specific features which promote fluency while emphasising its relative and interactional nature. These analyses produce both a methodological framework and a pedagogical strategy, illustrated by sample classroom activities.
