Overview

Teaching Chunks of Language

Seth Lindstromberg and Frank Boers

Teaching Chunks of Language is a motivating new resource book based on the fundamental assumptions of the so-called lexical (or ‘chunk teaching’) approach. Language as used by native speakers consists substantially of memorized multi-word chunks (e.g. by the way). For learners of a foreign language, knowledge of chunks is strongly associated with important aspects of proficiency such as oral fluency and naturalness of expression.

The challenging question for foreign learners therefore is this: How can many chunks be committed to active, long-term memory?

Teaching Chunks of Language suggests a communicative approach to the teaching of chunks of language. Most of the activities presented are decidedly communicative and involve a lot of speaking and listening as well as intensive reading and some writing.
