Published 2019.

Audio and video scripts in ELT materials are often criticised for their lack of authenticity, overload of target language, dull characters and non-existent plot lines. The writer needs to address these criticisms at the same time as working within the bounds of what learners can realistically handle. In this ebook John Hughes takes a look at the theoretical and practical issues involved in writing audio and video scripts for ELT materials; provides helpful suggestions for writing them, applying techniques used by writers for theatre and film, and encourages the writer to think critically about their script writing. Punctuated with examples from published materials, tasks and accompanying commentaries, John shares his experience and tips for best practice for creating scripts your learners will want to listen to.
