The Functions of Mini-talk Activity in Foreign Language Learning

CAI Yun Faculty of International Business and Management Guangdong U of Foreign Studies Guangzhou, Guangdong 510420 P.R. China  
Output activities will not only raise the learner抯 awareness of the target forms, but is also a process in which the learner formulates and tests his hypotheses on the target language, and one in which he reflects on forms (see Swain 1985, 1995, 1998). Such processes will facilitate the restructuring of the learner grammar. Furthermore, output in a second language is a process of automaticity, which will be achieved mainly, if not solely, through using the language itself. Mini-talk, as we define it, is an intensive type of output activity with much higher cognitive and linguistic demands than daily conversations. Through practice for more than one year, the learners in question felt substantial improvements in oral presentation as well as in creative thinking.
