The speaking module with the use of personal recorders is meant to provide a live and immediate feedback of how a student speaks. The speaking test is recorded and is played back to the candidate so that the student gets a feedback on how his or her accent, intonation, syntax, grammar and fluency sounds .Before the speaking session begins, all students are expected to self-evaluate their speaking skills on a scale of 1-9. After student has done speaking, the class evaluates the student. Finally, the instructor provides the actual score. This session therefore increases class participation and makes all students aware of their shortcomings, with an objective to hone their faculties of speech and listening.
