Why not write the monologues down!

Please, don’t write down your monologues. Use an outline. And first and foremost, listen and listen to my monologues. Then find useful language in your textbook too. Then do your outline, if that helps. Finally, start SPEAKING your monologue. Do that a few times every day, until you feel you can say it well.

  • Why not write it down?
  • When you write, you are not practicing/practising speaking: how to build sentences as you speak.
  • When you write, you are not practicing listening to yourself as you speak, to fix mistakes you may make.
  • When you write, you are not learning to use your communicative strategies, both to fix mistakes and to fix other problems we may encounter when we speak.

You will write down your monologue, if you like, AFTER you have told me/us your monologue and I give you feedback.

Then you can record it for your Speaking File (for this year and next year).
