How to achieve accuracy in oral speech in an EAP environment
The article focuses on such aspects of oral presentations as pronunciation and intonation, grammatical accuracy and vocabulary and 2nd year ICEF students’ errors which they made at the final exam. Certain techniques which involve explanation of basics of pronunciation and intonation, grammar rules and grammar structures, and teaching fluency are paid attention to. The experiment conducted by the author summarises students’ mistakes in all of the listed areas. The results show that students, despite quite an intensive input, continue making mistakes in grammar and pronunciation. The number of mistakes varies in four different groups of 2nd year students. The author examines all kinds of errors of students and makes deductions about possible ways of achieving accuracy in this skill of oral speech.
