Three Ways to Improve Foreign Language Instruction

1. Use the target language as much as possible, especially when discussing classroom and course management.  This provides students with authentic opportunities for communication.

2. Provide students with opportunities to work together in groups.  This way, the instructor does not have to worry about speaking with each student individually and students have more chances for negotiating meaning.

3. Take advantage of the resources available through Blackboard and the Ermal Garinger Academic Resource Center (EGARC).
