Teacher Talk and Linguistic Space

  • Allyson Julé


The teacher talk which surrounds the students in their language classroom is an integral part of their classroom experience and, therefore, a central element in their learning of English. The methods used by the teacher may suggest an objectified perception of the students with no mirrored-self of intersubjectivity. Also, the fact that Mrs. Smith’s students are in a language classroom to learn to speak English problematizes the lack of speech production, particularly on the part of the girls in this context, making their silence ironic. If they are in a language learning classroom, why are they rarely speaking?
