DESIGN OF MATERIALS AND TASKS FOR MAKING ESP CLASSES INTERACTIVE

Shahin Sultana

ABSTRACT:

This paper focuses on improving the communicative competence of ESP learners. Students of Engineering have to be motivated and guided in the classrooms with a wide range of tasks. They can be helped to enhance their speaking skill by carefully selecting materials and designing tasks based on their level and requirements. These tasks will enable them to interact with their peers in the classroom. In keeping with this view, an experimental study was conducted to show that learners will improve their speaking ability by taking part in their classroom activities. It was observed that students were largely benefited by participating and using the language in interacting with others.

KEYWORDS: need analysis, generation of content, peer relations, multi-level language abilities, socio-linguistic competence, negotiation of meaning
