STT (Student Talk Time)

Student Talk Time (STT) refers to the amount of time students spend speaking during a class. Increasing STT is essential for developing speaking proficiency, as it provides learners with opportunities to practice and use the target language. Techniques to increase STT include pair work, group discussions, debates, and interactive activities. Balancing STT with Teacher Talk Time (TTT) ensures that students are actively engaged and have ample opportunities to practice their speaking skills.
