One focus of early foreign language learning in the primary EFL classroom is the development of oral skills. Imitative and reproductive speaking activities can provide opportunities for the development of basic speaking competencies and fluency. Speaking practice aims at progressing the acquisition of the target language and helping children to become communicatively competent speakers of English. Using classroom management as a basis, this contribution suggests practical examples aimed at enabling and equipping young learners to speak English from the start.
