    • Why do so many learners find it difficult to speak in class?

    Some research indicated that some people fear ‘public speaking’ more than ‘death’ – this could apply even in L1 and is likely to be multiplied by speaking in L2

    • What can we do as teachers to help our learners feel more confident in their speaking ability?

    I like the idea about meaningful activities – using scenarios that the students can see will be helpful for them
