Language teaching, a scientific approach by Robert Lado( Book )

41 editions published between 1955 and 1983 in 3 languages and held by 1,201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed to update the contemporary language teacher's knowledge of the innovations in his field, this book introduces some of the essential major areas of which he should have an understanding to approach his work scientifically. Part one, dealing in general terms with language and language learning, sets the tone of the book with discussions of the relationship of language to linguistics and culture and the learning theory from which the new scientific approach to language teaching has evolved. Part two systematically treats such modern principles of language teaching as--(1) the utilization of linguistic knowledge in the control of the sounds and structures of target languages, (2) the association of lexical units with content or meaning, (3) the postponement of the introduction of reading and writing skills until after the basic language has been controlled audiolingually, and (4) the use of testing techniques appropriate to the linguistic problems being tested. Relevant to technological teaching devices, part three discusses the language laboratory, visual aids, and teaching machines and programed learning. A glossary of useful terms, a bibliography, and a chart of the modern language association qualifications for secondary school language teachers comprise the appendixes. This book is available for $6.50 from the mcgraw-hill book company, new york city, N.Y. (ab)
Language testing; the construction and use of foreign language tests: a teacher's book by Robert Lado( Book )

150 editions published between 1959 and 1981 in 6 languages and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended as a comprehensive introduction to the construction and use of foreign language tests, this book utilizes modern linguistic knowledge as a base for scientific language testing. Major attention in testing is focused on such integrated language skills as auditory and reading comprehension, speaking, writing, translation, and over-all language control. Teaching of cross-cultural understanding and abstract values is also covered. Final chapters on the refinement and use of language tests are devoted to definition and description of norms, validity, reliability, item analysis, scoring, experimental design, and achievement.

English pattern practices : establishing the patterns as habits by Robert Lado( Book )

This text, developed at the English Language Institute, is designed to enable the student of English as a second language to practice selected patterns of English speech. Required linguistic variations ensure that the student does not repeat the same sentence. His attention is drawn to changes in the pattern by the use of diagrams, pictures, or oral substitutions. It is urged that students complete their study of "English Sentence Patterns" before attempting to use this book. Sixteen sets of word and cartoon charts enable the student to test his comprehension of vocabulary introduced in the lessons. (Rl)
