Speaking in asecond or foreign language has often been viewed as the most demanding of thefour skills. When attempting to speak, learners must master their thoughts andencode them in the vocabulary and syntactic structures and functions of thetarget language for a communicative purpose. This desire for speaking stemsfrom the desire for communicating with the members of another community.Because, what is language but communication? Communication is what has allowedman to evolve and develop. It is at the heart of any relationship and forms thebasis of human civilization. Oral communication and conversationis the rock on which personal relationships are built. It is such a common partof our everyday lives that we take it for granted. From a casual conversationwith a stranger at a bus stop to an intimate conversation with some friends, itwould be impossible for us to go about our daily lives without being able tocommunicate with others. It is not only on a personal levelthat oral communication is important. When we watch TV, listen to the radio,listen to a lecture at university, we are participating in an oralcommunication act and certainly, when we listen to a personal, short story oran anecdote. In this study, we will look at thedifferent factors involved in accomplishing a specific task like storytellingby setting the differences between an oral and a written story. We will alsolook at the intentionality of the communicative situation, at the strategiesused to overcome any deficiency in language competence, the functions involvedand, mainly, at the process whereby students will be able to be successful inthis specific communicative situation.
