26 editions published between 1977 and 1982 in English and German and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a response to the recognition that the achievement of the threshold level of second language proficiency is for many adults an overly ambitious objective. The degree of communicative competence that will be imparted by the waystage approach will be about halfway between zero and the threshold level. This degree of competence will permit a significant ability to function among speakers of the second language without providing across-the-board skills in handling the language forms that will be encountered in ordinary communication situations. This document provides theoretical and practical information to persons involved in the adminstration and contruction of waystage programs and courses. The bulk of this volume consists of a listing of topic-related notions and common English referents, or exponents, to these notions. Emphasis is on survival areas of competence (identification, home, travel, health, and so on). A significant difference between this and the threshold approach is that the waystage approach does not distinguish between exponents for productive and receptive use on the one hand and exponents for receptive use alone on the other. Lexical and structural inventories follow the notional-functional inventory. A discussion of methodological considerations is appended. (Jb)

Objectives for foreign language learning by Jan Ate van Ek( Book )

11 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A guide to setting objectives for foreign language instruction provides a model for specifying comprehensive objectives and a discussion of their nature and educational implications. It follows up on the suggestions made in the "Threshold Level" series begun in 1975 with more complex specifications. Chapters define aims and objectives, examine the relationship between general and educational aims and foreign language objectives, and discuss and illustrate each component of the proposed model. The components are interrelated areas of competence needed for commmunication, including linguistic, sociolinguistic, discourse, strategic, sociocultural, and social competence. Separate chapters emphasize the importance of promoting individual autonomy and developing social responsibility in the process of teaching foreign language competence. (Mse)
