1(1), Oct-Nov-Dec

Abstract
The paper deals with one of the many challenges teachers face in the EFL/ESL classroom. The study emphasizes on the idea that students must not only to speak but to make progress in their speaking skill in a credible way. The suggestions provided in student books or other resource materials may not always fit the needs of the teachers in their quest of finding activities better suited to meet their objectives. If teachers cannot find suitable activities they must adapt existing ones or create new activities. This paper looks at how a set of topic cards for speaking was created to help the students meet certain objectives. The design of these cards developed through such considerations as incorporation of new vocabulary, exchange of ideas, individual pacing and provision of a variety of topics. How the activity addresses the growth of student’s confidence is also discussed in the present short communication.
Keywords: Enhancing speaking in class, EFL/ESL, material development, student confidence
