Interactive Lexical Phrases in Pair Interview Tasks

  • James Hobbs


I wanted to improve my students’ performance in pair interview tasks as they used a lot of mother tongue and sounded quite stilted.

I then designed materials to direct students’ attention to these phrases by using the task recordings in class within a TBL framework.
