Acquiring Communication Strategies through Conversational Training: The Case Study of 1st Year LMD Students at Djillali Liabès University Sidi Bel Abbès Algeria

Merbouh Zouaoui, Melouk Mohamed


Learning to speak a foreign language requires not only to know its grammatical and semantic rules but to acquire the knowledge of how native speakers use the language, i.e., using structured interpersonal exchanges in a certain context where various factors interact. To provide effective guidance to make competent speakers of English, it is necessary to examine the factors that affect learners' oral communication and specific strategies used in communication. Teachers are now conscious that students find problems to communicate in English. Although students know grammar rules, vocabulary, and some useful expressions for conversation, they lack to use communication strategies. Therefore, the aim of this study is to explore how to encourage students to acquire communication strategies.
