Carpenter, Walter Center for International Cooperation in Engineering Education (CICEE), Graduate School of Advanced Technology, The University of Tokushima
The article traces the origins，and considers the effectivess，of an English-language speaking and listening activity，intended for use in a“communicative-approach oriented" classroom.In considering the communicative nature of the exercise presented here，the paper briefly considers some differences between
how the English language is taught to Japanese students in Japan-and how the Japanese language is taught to foreigners.The exercise introduced here，Mad Minutes!，was initially developed for use in an English as Second Language (ESL) classroom in the United States. Since then ,it has since been successfully used at the University of Tokushima (UT)，and elsewhere，in an English as a Foreign Language (EFL)，setting. A four-step plan for using Mad Minutes! is also provided near the end of the article，for the benefit of educators who may wish to use the activity in their classrooms.
