CAMARGO URIBE, Ángela  and  HEDERICH MARTINEZ, Christian. Communicative style and its presence in the classroom. Folios [online]. 2007, n.26, pp.3-12. ISSN 0123-4870.

This paper explores the possibility of identifying teaching styles on the basis of differences in teachers’ communicative behaviors, that have an expression in observable differences in teachers’ linguistic styles. In order to do that, a review of papers on communicative styles from the cultural, generic and individual perspectives is made. Finally, the proposal is considered in the context of the studies on classroom communication, specifically, the studies on teachers’ patterns of language use in the classroom.

Keywords : Individual differences; communicative style; teaching style; classroom discourse; cultural differences.
