SELF-INSTRUCTION IN THE NON-WESTERN LANGUAGES--A MANUAL FOR PROGRAM DIRECTORS.
BOYD-BOWMAN, PETER
THIS INSTRUCTIONAL MANUAL WAS PREPARED FOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS WHO WISH TO ESTABLISH AUTOINSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS IN LANGUAGES NOT OFFERED IN THE REGULAR CLASS SCHEDULES OF THEIR INSTITUTIONS. SUCH PROGRAMS WOULD EMPHASIZE INDEPENDENT STUDY WITH COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE TEXTS AND TAPE RECORDINGS, AND PRONUNCIATION DRILLS SUPERVISED BY NATIVE SPEAKERS (FOREIGN STUDENTS). OVERALL EMPHASIS WOULD BE PLACED ON LISTENING COMPREHENSION AND SPEAKING, WITH SECONDARY IMPORTANCE GIVEN TO WRITING. FIVE SUCH LANGUAGE PROGRAMS WERE SET UP AND EVALUATED FOR FIVE ACADEMIC QUARTERS AT KALAMAZOO COLLEGE IN MICHIGAN. AN EVALUATION OF THIS "NEGLECTED LANGUAGE PROGRAM" (NLP) CAN BE FOUND IN ED 010 401.
