Teaching and learning languages by Earl W Stevick( Book )

55 editions published between 1980 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book on the theory and practice of language teaching and learning develops the argument that learning a language depends on "what goes on inside and between the people in the classroom." The material is presented in three parts. Part 1 is a nontechnical account of how teacher and students interact, and of how the mind deals with foreign language data. The second part discusses a wide range of techniques for pronunciation, memorization, grammar, audiovisual and other aids, oral activity, writing material for one's class, and adapting existing texts. The emphasis is not primarily on amassing a large number of workable techniques, but on understanding the technique, seeing what is behind it, and how it is related to other techniques. The last section looks at basic linguistic data, especially phonology and grammar. The final chapter gives suggestions for further reading. (Amh)

30 editions published between 1975 and 1996 in 4 languages and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part two, "Meaning," explores this dimension as it applies to the foreign language classroom, and consists of the following chapters: (1) "Inside the Student: Some Meanings of Pronunciation and Fluency"; (2) "The Meaning of Drills and Exercises"; and (3) "Between Teacher and Student: The Class as a Small Group." Part three, "Method," examines implications for language teaching methods. This section presents (1) "a General View of Method," followed by a discussion of (2) "Community Language Learning"; (3) "The Silent Way"; and (4) "Some Other Methods," including the Saint-Cloud and the Lozanov Method.

Images and options in the language classroom by Earl W Stevick( Book )

27 editions published between 1986 and 1991 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What choices do language teachers have in making materials and procedures more effective in the classroom? What role does mental imagery play in these choices? In this original book, Earl Stevick shows how an understanding of imagery can aid teachers in identifying and evaluating man), of the alternatives available for their day-to-day work in the classroom. Using samples from current language textbooks at all levels, he shows how combinations from thirty-three different options can generate both the needed techniques and their variants. --From publisher's description

13 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dual purpose of this book is to set forth guidelines for appreciating the kinds of instructional materials available for the uncommonly taught languages and to suggest an approach to writing new materials which will be as adaptable as possible. Of principal concern are considerations relating to: (1) the nature of language teaching, (2) the modular approach to materials development, (3) evaluating and adapting language materials, (4) writing adaptable materials, (5) learners' synopses, (6) Cummings devices, (7) microtexts, and (8) routine manipulations. Numerous appendixes include discussions of adaptation of: a dialog drill format in Spanish, "microwave" format in Telegu, an English pattern-practice format, self-instructional format in Spanish, prose texts in Mauritian Creole, and a lesson for discussion by readers of Igbo. Other sections contain appendixes relevant to the central topic. References and an index are included. (Rl)

Chinyanja : basic course by Foreign Service Institute (U.S.)( Book )

9 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This language course is intended to provide the linguistically oriented student with the fundamental elements of chinyanja (also commonly referred to without the "chi" prefix as "nyanja"). The principle language of malawi, chinyanja is also spoken by large numbers of malawians in neighboring countries. The course is based on a set of dialogs developed from impromptu conversations recorded by two of the malawian authors. Intended to be introduced orally, these dialogs are glossed in english and contain the special structure points of each unit. They are followed by explanatory notes and exercises and, in earlier lessons, by short "autobiographical" question and answer sections. Later units are longer, with more attention given to the grammatical devices of the language. Emphasis throughout is on mastery of the dialogs. Instructions for the teacher are included in the introduction. This document is also available from the superintendent of documents, U.S. government printing office, washington, D.C. 20402, for $1.75. (amm)

Luganda: basic course by Frederick Katabazi Kamoga( Book )

9 editions published in 1968 in English and Undetermined and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This "Luganda Basic Course" is not a course in the usual sense. Rather, it is a collection of materials which can be useful in the interaction between teachers and learners. It follows the method by which foreigners interact when they do not speak a common language: personal names and names of respective countries and cities are exchanged. Geographical directions and locations are mentioned, as well as other things that can be easily referred to (items of clothing, food and furniture). These types of activities occupy the first 21 lessons. Variations and vocabulary are practiced in pattern drills. Interspersed throughout the remaining lessons (there are 94 lessons in the text) are dialogs and monologs. Pattern drills, questions, pronunciation exercises, dictations, variations on the dialogs, and glossaries are employed throughout. Kinship charts and a glossary are appended. (Do)
