ESL: What is Talk Hour?
Talk Hour, a spinoff of the Talk Time program we administered at Lone Star College's ESL/ESOL Tutoring Program in the Writing Center, is a conversation-based approach to language learning for non-native speakers of English. While traditionally the program is intended for groups of 3-5 students, results have been consistent with any sized group under 9, including one-on-one. Each individual's native language is irrelevant, and the only rules are:
1. Be Respectful
2. Speak Only English
Of course, this can be quite challenging for students of any age, from beginning to advanced. It is natural to cling to familiarity, especially when forming friendships with other clients/students who might speak the same language! The group facilitator (in this case, myself) is a trained ESL instructor who ensures that the conversations stay generally on topic, and that the two basic rules are followed. The group or the student is solely in charge of choosing each day's (or week's) topic. For the next hour, the group will discuss casually, or "conversationally," the chosen topic, through a series of targeted questioning, open-ended discussion, and the use of several cues and visual aids to strengthen comprehension. It is a fun, enjoyable, often lively discussion with no pressure, no requirement to participate for beginners (just listening is ok!), and the results are proven.
Some of the benefits of Talk Hour include: Real-world application of language learning surrounding topics of interest and topics that will likely be discussed in everyday American conversation; Strengthening of world knowledge; Greater empathy toward peers and other cultures; Relationship skill building and the ability to effectively communicate; Listening skills in addition to speaking and comprehension skills.
The office location for Next Generation English contains several open conference rooms and can accomodate up to 9 students at a time. All ages, all levels, all cultures are welcome!
