Abstract

ABSTRACT Being massively successful in connecting people across the world, English has been continuously gaining prestigious recognition and this has made effective communication skills in English a necessity in every walk of life. In this study, the researcher investigated the use of Small Talk as a method to the improve oral communication skills of 37 trainees in Kerala, by getting them involved in a series of communicative activities namely group discussion, general discussion and outside-classroom discussion. The results of the study show that Small Talk has successfully improved their speaking performance as measured periodically during the program, using two scales of the CEFR framework, the Global Oral Assessment Scale and Oral Assessment Criteria Grid. The finding suggests that language teachers and trainers could either adapt or adopt Small Talk in the classroom to improve or enhance students’ speaking skills.
