Abstract

This paper deals with teaching English discourse markers to native speakers of Bosnian who learn English as a second language. We present a corpus of realistic audio and video recordings of every-day Bosnian and British English conversation and argue that using these recordings in ESL classroom instead of constructed text examples is crucial for successfully teaching the conversational phenomena such as discourse markers.
