Sandy Millin: Micro-dictations

Sandy Millin: Micro-dictations | Listening and Speaking in Second or Foreign Language Teaching | Scoop.it
Back in November, my pre-intermediate students were listening to a coursebook text. There was an Irish speaker telling a story about his aunt and uncle’s holiday, and most of the students had no idea what he was saying. It wasn’t just his accent that was difficult for them. He spoke too quickly, and his use of connected speech was something they hadn’t really encountered before, or if they had, they hadn’t been taught how to deal with it.
