Из четырех речевых умений (говорение чтение, аудирование, письмо) - говорение является самым главным. Людьми, которые «знают язык» считаются те, кто умеет свободно на нем общаться, так как говорение включает в себя все остальные виды знаний и умений. Большинство людей изучающих иностранный язык ,прежде всего заинтересованы в том, что бы говорить на этом языке.

Речевые   упражнения, которые развивают ученические способности выражать свою мысль через устную речь \ посредством говорения, являются важным компонентом обучения иностранному языку. Достаточно сложно разработать такое упражнение и управлять им во время выполнения. чем при выполнении тех же заданий по аудированию, чтению или письму. Так что же должно представлять из себя «эффективное языковое упражнение»

Эффективное языковое упражнение должно обладать следующими характеристиками:

-Ученики активно принимают участие в разговоре - большую часть времени отведенное на задание должны говорить ученики, а не учитель. Паузы во время выполнения заданий должны быть минимальными.

-Участие в разговоре во время выполнения задания на говорение должно быть равным для всех учеников. На практике же, большую часть времени говорит учитель, либо один или два доминирующих ученика.

-Высокая мотивация к говорению - ученики хотят говорить если предмет разговора им интересен и они хотят поделиться своими мыслями

Или же они хотят сотрудничать что бы выполнить цель задания.

-Уровень знания языка по теме должен быть на достаточном уровне-

Учащиеся выражают свою мысль высказываниями \репликами ,соответствующими их языковому уровню и которые легко понимаются всеми участниками разговора. Соблюдение грамматических правил и употребление лексики так же должно быть на должном уровне.

На практике очень мало заданий по говорению, которые выполняются на уроке соотвествуют выше перечисленнным требованиям.

При выполнении заданий на обучение говорению встречаются следующие проблемы:

- учащиеся стесняются говорить на иностранном языке, так как бояться сделать ошибку

- недостаточный уровень информации по теме-«нечего сказать» по данному вопросу

- низкий уровень участия в разговоре

- использование родного языка

Учитывая выше перечисленные требования мною были разработаны следующие упражнения, направленные на развитие навыков говорения учащихся 9 класса.

The argument arises out of clash roles. Teenagers want to gain greater independence, more freedom. Young people and their parents have different views on when the children should be allowed to do things alone: choose what to wear and eat, what time to come home, with whom to go out, etc.

Researchers have found that most disputes between parents and teenagers are not very hated and are typically about issues, such as:

Fighting with brothers and sisters,

Cleaning up bedroom,


Their own space, time,

Helping out around the house;

Doing home work,


Time to come home,
