Session Abstract

Can ELLs learn the basics of grammar as unconsciously as they do their L1?  We will use humor to lower affective barriers while subtly pre-teaching rules and maintaining student participation through dialoguing. With fluid conversation, students can stop being passengers on the ship of World Englishes and start being co-captains!
