This article looks at the effect of a technique which gets learners to tell the same story three times to different listeners with decreasing time for each retelling. During the activity learners made substantial gains in speed of speaking and reduced the number of hesitations in their retellings. The technique allowed learners to perform at a level higher than their normal level of fluency. © 1991, Sage Publications. All rights reserved.
