There is some debate between teachers and even researchers that one way of teacher speech is better than others. Some propose not changing your speech rate, clarity, structure, or vocabulary, believing that learners need to hear real English speaking to improve. They consider this more of a natural way of language teaching. Others say that students need to hear clear, slowed, conventional, understandable teacher speech to follow along and pick up the language. This is what we could call a more nurturing method of language teaching. In our blog today, we’ll discuss both sides of the discussion and in the end, you’ll have a better idea that works best for you and your learners.
