I am an ESL teacher and creator of ELLLO, which stands for English Listening Lesson Library Online. I am interested in using authentic speech as graded readers.
With the advent of audio and voice-to-text technology, in many ways, EL and ER are merging into similar tools for learning - comprehensible text with audio support. However, there is a big difference between written text and spoken text, as well as spoken texts and extemporaneous speech. This presentation will look at ways EL can augment ER by using linguistic aspects not found in written text.
