UNIVERSITY CONVERSATION TEXTBOOK What is an academic conversation? You illustrate your point with specific examples from your own life. By pairing writing and speaking, improvement in one is improvement in both. Writing is great preparation for speaking, and speaking is great reinforcement for writing. Why would you ever teach them separately? The goal is smooth, confident speaking. Listening, reading, writing, vocabulary and pronunciation are used as preparation. As a result, they improve also. What happens when all those skills improve? Much better standardized test scores. For details contact the author at: [email protected] See inside at:
