Two rather interesting posts on EFL Geek:
- Krashen on “English Villages”
- I Speak No English — The Kids in the Hall have no idea just how realistic this comedy skit is! I keep telling students not to memorize their speeches for classes, and while my Public Speaking class gets it, I keep meeting others who think outright memorization is useful. They often agree it isn’t so useful for becoming more fluent or skilled in using a language in real life, but, you know, it gets them better grades than impromptu speech with errors, so… well, that tells you something about graded conversation courses, doesn’t it?
