Abstract

The case study aims to use the real-time online communicative system to teach foreign learners spoken English based on sociocultural theory and communicative language teaching approach curriculum. A real-time online spoken English instruction was designed and delivered by all teachers. The teachers were graduate students majoring in teaching English as a second language at a Midwestern university in the United States. The learners were employees in government enterprises in China. Data were collected from both interviews to all the teachers and participant observation. Through in-depth understanding of teachers’ perceptions of using SCMC system for spoken English instruction, the findings are expected to provide suggestions for teachers’ preparation to effectively use a real-time online system in spoken English education.
