Who is this video for?

This is video is meant for language teachers or language learners. English learners will need to be upper intermediate in order to follow comfortably. 

What Ten-minute Writing?

All of the activities in the Fluency Development Strand are about using what you know and becoming better at using what you know. In the video I talk about how writing as fast as you can about an easy topic is beneficial for language learning. Using writing for fluency development is just another way to help balance out our work and ensure that we are getting enough message-focused work where it’s needed. The activity only takes ten-minutes and it uses what is already known. So there is not teaching needed before the activity. Progress is checked by keeping track of the number of words produced and it should steadily increase over time.
