Post presentation thoughts and thanks

Sunday evening, finished the presentation. Thank you Anne for working with me on this. I appreciate it a lot! It is much easier to present as a pair than alone. Ibaraki JALT is a fine group of people! Thank you for your support and warm-heartedness.  Tom and Yasue’s presentation was excellent too! Thank you for doing this with us!

Now, I am just going to vegetate for a bit. Put the books and the papers away! Tomorrow’s another day. Tomorrow’s a work day. Tomorrow never knows…..

Fluency? Fluency. Fluency!: Practical and theoretical approaches to fluency development.

Armed with a firm background in grammar and lexis, Japanese EFL students are well primed for fluency development. This presentation will demonstrate a simple and effective fluency activity that is suitable for a wide range of levels and class contexts. Both theoretical and practical uses will be discussed.
