Dialogic Talks: The Privotal Puzzle Piece to Enhance Reading Experiences


This presentation revolves around the use of Dialogic Talks in EFL settings. This collaborative strategy enhances students’ reading experiences by allowing them to interact and explore a literary text on their own and with others. However, there is scarce literature on its use in contexts where an additional language is spoken. To support this teaching-learning strategy in these specific educational settings, the speakers will introduce the notion of Dialogic Talks and present evidence of its benefits. They will then describe an intervention carried out in EFL Teacher Education, and provide qualitative data extracted from the instructors’ observations and students’ final written reflections. Results run parallel to previous findings in L1 contexts. Furthermore, they demonstrate that dialogic talks can bring students together and foster tolerance and intercultural awareness, while contributing to their effective literacy development in an additional language.
