Today, there are about four nonnative-speaking English teachers for every teacher who is a native speaker. More English teachers work in non-English-speaking settings than in English-speaking settings, and most are natives of the countries in which they teach. This volume focuses on the challenges faced by English teachers for whom Englishis a second (or even third or fourth) language. Four themes receive special emphasis: communicative language teaching, proficiency, language learning, and practicality. Chapters 1-5 cover issues of classroom survival: basic principles of language learning and teaching and course and lesson planning. Chapters 6-13 discuss the language skills of listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar; the role of culture in language teaching; and some of the problems that recur in EFL classrooms. An afterword suggests paths for teachers who want to pursue further study, and appendixes offer a starter kit for course planning, samplecourse plans, culture-topic activity ideas for oral skills classes, and print and Internet resources for teachers and students.

View: 9530

This publication is a discussion of what is known today about learning and teaching English as a second language, also known as TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages). The discussion is divided into three sections: (1) the historical development of the field in the United States; (2) the domains of TESOL; and (3) the teacher, the subject matter, the students, and methods and techniques. The second part focuses on bilingual education, outlining its development in the U.S., considering problems in implementation of federal legislation, and presenting conflicting views of TESOL and bilingual education supporters. This part also considers briefly the status of English as a Foreign Language, English as a Second Language, and English to Speakers of Other Dialects. The third part provides suggestions for sources of information, a discussion of the distinction between linguistic competence and communicative competence, a list of do's and don'ts for teachers regarding appreciation of the students' cultures, and a consideration of objectives, methods, and techniques. A list of selected references concludes the volume. (AMH)
