APPLIED LINGUISTICS IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS.
O'CHERONY, ROSALYN
THE AUTHOR STATES APPLIED LINGUISTICS SHOULD BE INCLUDED AS A REQUIRED COURSE OF STUDY IN THE CURRICULUM FOR FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS, ALTHOUGH THE INCLUSION POSES MANY PROBLEMS AND NECESSITATES THE EXPANSION OF THE PRESENT-DAY FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHER CURRICULUM. THE STUDY OF APPLIED LINGUISTICS CANNOT BE UNDERTAKEN PROFITABLY BEFORE THE STUDENT POSSESSES A HIGH DEGREE OF PROFICIENCY IN ALL ASPECTS OF THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE AND THE NATIVE LANGUAGE TOGETHER WITH KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS IN THE FIELDS OF DESCRIPTIVE LINGUISTICS AND THE PSYCHOLOGY OF LANGUAGE LEARNING. THE IMPLICATION IS THAT, IF FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS ARE TO BE GIVEN BETTER PROFESSIONAL TRAINING THAN IS GENERALLY AVAIABLE TODAY, A REVISED CURRICULUM INCLUDING APPLIED LINGUISTICS AND RELATED SUBJECTS IS IN ORDER. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "ILLINOIS JOURNAL OF EDUCATION," VOLUME 57, NUMBER 6, WHOLE NUMBER 534, OCTOBER 1966. (AUTHOR)
