Title : Applying smart class to enhance English- major students' speaking practice opportunities and improve students' speaking skill.
Type : Workshop (60 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

English speaking skill is considered the most critical skill for language learners to integrate into the globe. However, Vietnamese students find it hard to reach a competent speaking level. The size of a conventional class gives students less chances to practice speaking. Moreover, the lack of encouraging environment and the lack of demand for students’ active engagement in their own learning demotivate students and hinder students from achieving their fluency and proficiency in English speaking skill. Therefore, it is crucial for teachers to apply the another teaching method to amplify the students’ speaking practice opportunities inside and outside the classroom as well as foster autonomous learning through technology. This study is to investigate how smart class can solve the challenges faced by English–major students in a Vietnamese university. The data obtained from the survey with 100 students, individual interviews with lecturers. The findings show that students’ speaking skill improves a lot through activities like conversation pairing, oral recording, pronunciation, activities for both in–class and self–access assignment.
