Teaching languages to adults by Duncan Sidwell( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of six essays focuses on second language instruction for adult learners. In "Modern Languages and the Adult Student" (David Smith), the motivations of adults taking evening classes are examined and the ways in which language teachers need to adjust to this population are discussed. "Language Learning Theories and Their Implications for the Classroom" (Shelagh Rixon) outlines and discusses theories in two categories: those developed from the late nineteenth century to the early 1970s (grammar translation, direct, and audiolingual methods), and those appearing since the early 1970s, based on the communicative approach. In "Syllabus Design and Multi-Media Course Organisation" (John L.M. Trim), models for curriculum design are reviewed, and multimedia language instruction is recommended as offering a more complete range of learning situations to the student. Specific classroom techniques appropriate to adult student needs and attitudes and the constraints and pressures faced by their instructors are offered in "In the Classroom" (John Langran). Special considerations for language teachers and administrators of adult education language programs are analyzed in "The Tutor, the Head of Centre, and Inservice Education" (Duncan Sidwell). "Public Examinations and Achievement Tests" (Lynn Jones and Alan Moys) outlines the types of examinations available and suitable for adult education in foreign languages and provides some guidelines for their selection.

Communicative language teaching in practice by Rosamond Mitchell( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first two stages of a research project on the teaching of second languages in Scotland using the communicative approach are reported. In the first stage, 59 language teachers in 20 schools were interviewed concerning their understanding of the notion of communicative competence and its development in the classroom. In the second stage, French instruction was studied in four secondary schools in central Scotland. The first chapter summarizes 15 themes emerging in the teacher interviews. Chapters 2-7 report on the study's second stage, including: analysis of practice foreign language, communicative foreign language, and English-medium teaching activities observed at the four schools; transcriptions and discussion of four role-playing and two simulation activities observed as part of the study; five classroom communicative activities used to convey information about the language or impart background knowledge about French culture in addition to serving communicative purposes; the linguistic features of teacher talk at each school; teacher communication strategies and pupil repair strategies; and functional differentiation in classroom language choice. Supporting materials and a 63-item bibliography are appended. (Mse)
