*What are the elements that make a speaking activity successful? *Which types of tasks or activities really help build speaking fluency? Is there research to support this? *What mistakes do ESL teachers often make in speaking activity design? In this book, Keith S. Folse provides ESL/EFL teachers with a plethora of information regarding the design of speaking activities. His goal is to help teachers design and use speaking tasks that will actually improve students' speaking abilities. The book includes a discussion of the research as well as assessment issues related to speaking. He has included case studies from 20 different settings and classrooms so that readers hear from others about the problems and successes of various speaking activities around the world. Teachers will find the chapters on Twenty Successful Activities and Ten Unsuccessful Activities particularly helpful. The successful activities are provided for classroom use and are reproducible. The book also contains appendixes that explain what teachers need to know about vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar and how they affect the teaching of speaking.

Dr. Keith Folse is a Professor of TESOL at the University of Central Florida. He is the author of 57 textbooks on a variety of subjects from grammar to vocabulary to composition, including five best-selling books in the Great Writing series by National Geographic Learning.
