Teaching interlanguage pragmatics

Teaching interlanguage pragmatics | TELT | Scoop.it

Second Language Pragmatics is defined by Yule (1996) as “meaning as communicated by a speaker (or writer) and interpreted by a listener (or reader)” (pp.3-4), pragmatics entails the various dimensions of interaction that guide speakers on what to say and listeners on ways to interpret what is being said.  In both foreign and second language classrooms, explicit pragmatic instruction can have a strong impact on the development of successful interpersonal speaking skills. 


Pragmatic dimensions can be embedded in lessons starting at novice-level courses and continuing through the advanced and superior level courses.  Learning strategies for considering each dimension can be helpful in making strategic language choices for successful interaction.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Activities for teaching aspects of pragmatics to second language learners, designed by students of Julie Sykes at CASLS at the University of Oregon. Thanks for sharing :-)

There’s always one, isn’t there! You’re trying to explain, and every time you say something, some bright spark interjects “But surely…”. In the end you snap back “Stop calling me Shirley!
