Speaking is a productive skill and a skill that learners fear most. Effective strategies such as drills, dialogues, role play will be used by the teachers to expose learners to the language and to help them to develop their language ability and develop their confidence in using it.

Speaking activities provide rehearsal opportunities-chances to practise real-life speaking in the safety of classroom. Speaking tasks also provide feedback for both teacher and students. Goos speaking activities make students autonomous langauge users.

The activities given here are presented to foster better speaking.
