with Jeannette Okur, Dept of Middle Eastern Studies

Wed, November 13, 2013 | Texas Union Sinclair Suite, UNB 3.128

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Bargaining with the street vendor, tricking Mom into going to the Internet café, interpreting Turkish coffee grinds online… This presentation will demonstrate how culturally relevant online listening drills introduce novice-level students to “real use” of basic vocabulary and grammatical structures, helping them to take control of their learning and to more easily reproduce language patterns in face-to-face interaction in class!
