Abstract:

The paper describes two techniques in programed instruction designed to offer a student genuine communication experiences in a foreign language. In simulated tutoring, a recording is made of only the tutors voice while he tutors a live subject in the correct pronunciation of a short dialogue. Students subsequently responding to the pre-recorded utterances experience the illusion that a live teacher is tutoring them. In simulated conversation, the student is given information relevant to a communication situation e.g., making a purchase which is then simulated for him on tape in the foreign language. On the tape he is confronted with a relatively unpredictable set of questions and comments, to which he must generate appropriate responses. Author
