Calling You (this section is in-progress)

The activities in Calling You are an attempt to connect informal 'street' language with formal English. Telephone calls between family and friends were recorded, where 'authentic' language is unscripted and the speakers don't know they are being recorded. Please read the tutors section for a fuller rationale of this type of linguistic 'undercover' work. For the learning activities please click students.
