  • It is indisputable that the use of target language is not only important to use in classroom discourse, but essential. The way we interact with one another, should thus be in the target language, but also rooted in authenticity. Although the classroom environment is an artificial construct, we should nevertheless strive to create authentic scenarios so our students are prepared for using language in the real world. By giving classroom language a real-world context, we not only prepare our students for participating in the real world with real language, we also increase their motivation and interest. This web chat will equip participants with strategies for staying in the target language and designing authentic scenarios that can be implemented in the classroom.
