LEARNING AND TEACHING THE SPOKEN COMPETENCE IN AN OPEN DISTANCE CONTEXT: FROM THE CASSETTE TO VIRTUAL INTERACTION
This article describes the evolution of the teaching and learning of oral competence in foreign languages throughout the history of various institutions involved in distance education. It begins with a brief summary of concepts of distance learning and goes on to focus more specifically on the distance learning of languages. An analysis is also made of current practice and common activities in the distance teaching of the oral language skills. The article concludes with a brief look at the new generation of distance language learning approaches, such as mobile language learning research and the use of virtual worlds by some distance universities following the recommendations of the Common European Framework of Reference for Language (CEFR) and the European Space for Higher Education (ESHE).
