Speaking Strategies

Unread postby cb51 » Sat May 15, 2010 3:55 pm

Hi All,

Could someone please explain the meaning of speaking strategies?

I thought that speech elements such as word stress, sentence stress,

intonation, vowels and consonants were all strategies that we taught students to

help them improve their oral skills. Recently, I looked up speaking strategies and read

that "conversational skills" such as asking for information, or learning how to interrupt

politely were considered speaking strategies.

I appreciate all responses,
