Title: Developing Pragmatic Competence in a Foreign Language
Author: Tello Rueda, Yined
Pragmatic competence in a foreign language; Explicit instruction in pragmatics
Publisher: Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas
Description: This article presents a theoretical discussion about the inclusion of explicit pragmatic instruction as a facilitative tool to develop pragmatic competence in a foreign language. Given the theoretically and empirically informed fact that this competence is generally neglected in the classroom, the rationale here presented may serve as a foundation for foreign language teachers, who face the necessity of helping learners develop pragmatic skills in the target language. Likewise, this article intends to be a prompter for classroom researchers, eager to explore the effect of pragmatic instruction, and the potential developmental stages learners undergo, through the conduction of longitudinal and cross-sectional research studies.
