Using Deliberative Techniques in the English as a Foreign Language Classroom: A Manual for Teachers of Advanced Level Students

Synopsis

"Using Deliberative Techniques in the English as a Foreign Language Classroom offers hands-on material for integrating role plays, simulations, debates, speeches and presentations in the EFL classroom. Using these deliberative techniques is a proven approach for improving critical thinking and cultural/social skills while teaching language skills. Using deliberative techniques forces students to abandon translating word for world and to internalize English. Students think, process, and analyze in English and put language to use - cementing language learning."
