Speaking promotion
I ´m carrying out a research about the promotion of speaking in the ESL classroom and I wonder if you could help me answering some questions.

If you can, please send me your answers through private message. Thanks!!! :)

1.      What level/s do you teach?

2.      In your opinion, does speaking take an important place in the classroom? Why/why not?

3.      What activities do you set to your students for them to practise speaking?

If the teacher teaches/has taught both children and adults, answer question 4.

If the teacher has taught only one of the levels, answer question 5.

4.      Do you use the same activities with adults and children? Do they respond to your activities in the same way? Which activities do you consider specific for children? And for adults?

5.      Do you think the same activities are suitable for both age groups?

6.      In which occasions do you correct students’ mistakes when speaking?
