Abstract :Speaking is considered the most difficult skill area for many Japanese learners of English, including the students who participated in the activities discussed in this paper. This paper will report on the design of sequential communicative speaking activities in a university English as a foreign language (EFL) TOEFL preparation course. The author introduced three activities: Controlled conversational warm-up in pairs, guess-the-word pair interaction, and a guess-the-word task based on flipped materials derived from BrainPOP video-viewing and vocabulary sheets. Warm-up materials focused on expressing positive and negative emotions and on articulating reasons for such feelings. Guess-the-word materials with simple target words were modified to compensate for participants’ inability to connect written words to their sounds and, subsequently, varied levels of knowledge amongst participants about target vocabulary. Academic vocabulary for TOEFL was introduced through another guess-the-words activity where students prepared word explanations after studying materials from the Brain-POP website outside of class. This report argues that such sequential introduction of speaking activities is manageable for Japanese learners, even those who are generally reluctant to speak English.
