This investigate teaching pragmatic competence, specifically the appropriate register. The subjects were 34 2nd year EFL students enrolled in "Basic Conversation", over one semester, at a Japanese national university. Students wrote and performed 4 scripted dialogues as part of an ABAB single case study where the intervention was focusing exercises of optimal features of the oral register authentic NS dialogues. Comparison of the baseline and subsequent scripts using the Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test (non-parametric) showed a significant increase in the use of spoken features. Student feedback and instructor observation also provided corroboration. The results point to the utility of authentic materials in the Japanese EFL classroom.
