This book focuses on understanding the process of problem construction in oral communication in foreign language contexts, examining how speakers of English as a second language approach issues in oral communication, as well as the strategies they employ to overcome these difficulties. Using theories of general communication, and in particular current approaches to L2 oral communication and strategies in interactional discourse, the authors construct a theoretical framework for defining, identifying and classifying learners’ problems and coping strategies when speaking English as a second or foreign language. The book offers a coherent process-oriented description of the complex and multidimensional nature and typology of oral interaction problems in EFL contexts, and it will be of interest to practitioners, teachers, researchers, students, and curriculum designers in Applied Linguistics and TESOL.

Each year, 700,000 students from around the world come to the United States and Canada to study. For many, the experience is as challenging as it is exciting. Far from home, they must adapt to a new culture, new university system, and in many cases, a new language. The process can be overwhelming, but as Charles Lipson’s Succeeding as an International Student in the United States and Canada assures us, it doesn’t have to be. Succeeding is designed to help students navigate the myriad issues they will encounter—from picking a program to landing a campus job. Based on Lipson’s work with international students as well as extensive interviews with faculty and advisers, Succeeding includes practical suggestions for learning English, participating in class, and meeting with instructors. In addition it explains the rules of academic honesty as they are understood in U.S. and Canadian universities. Life beyond the classroom is also covered, with handy sections on living on or off campus, obtaining a driver’s license, setting up a bank account, and more. The comprehensive glossary addresses both academic terms and phrases heard while shopping or visiting a doctor. There is even a chapter on the academic calendar and holidays in the United States and Canada. Coming to a new country to study should be an exciting venture, not a baffling ordeal. Now, with this trustworthy resource, international students have all the practical information they need to succeed, in and out of the classroom.

Advanced Level ESLOver a billion people worldwide are students of English as a Second Language, including learners in every country in the world. In addition to being the world's most commonly spoken native language (other than perhaps Mandarin), English is also the world's most commonly studied second language, because of the global adoption of the language in the business and entertainment communities.This book provides the ultimate vocabulary and intelligence challenge for all learners of English and English enthusiasts worldwide. It is primarily targeted at advanced learners of English as a Second Language, and features words that are challenging.There are many apps and games that help us learn languages in a fun and exciting way.From the gamification inherent in apps like Duolingo and Rosetta Stone, to more traditional approaches in brick and mortar language classes, language learning has always seen a variety of pedagogical approaches.This book offers an interesting - and successful - new take on the age-old problem of building up one's vocabulary in a new language quickly and at minimal cost.Learning English has many aspects: it is important to learn basic grammar and sentence structure. It is also very important to have a large bank of words to draw from, so that you can understand all the important parts of a conversation, and also so that you can read a book or watch a movie and follow most of what's going on without needing to use a dictionary or rely too heavily on the subtitles.Within this book, you will learn hundreds of new English words through the medium of multiple fun and engaging word game formats.The book can be read in two ways: it can either be approached as a serious puzzle book by people who are 3-12 months into a English course, and are looking to take their vocabulary size to the next level, in a way that is more interesting and entertaining than the tried and tested method of going through a dictionary and memorizing word after word.It can also be used by people who are just starting off on their English journey. I have provided the meanings, in English, of every English word featured in this book; this will help any reader go through the answers and learn the words, before going back to the questions after a while, and trying to guess those words in a different order.All the very best!
