What are the criteria for a fluency activity? Nation suggests that you ask yourself the following four questions:
1. Is it message and meaning focused?
2. Is it easy? (familiar material – nothing new)
3. Is there pressure to go faster? (Speed)
4. Is there quantity of practice? (Volume)
In the video you see below, Dr. Paul Nation will explain how to do the 4-3-2 fluency development activity for speaking.
Watch closely, and towards the end, you will receive an unexpected bonus: Nation names a condition for learning. Here’s a clue: it starts with the letter “R” and it has nine letters, with the final letter being the letter, “L”. It has 4 vowels.
