THE LANGUAGE LABORATORY IN A SMALL TESOL PROGRAM.
ROSS, JANET
ALTHOUGH THE VALUE OF THE LANGUAGE LABORATORY IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROGRAMS IS WELL ESTABLISHED IN THE UNITED STATES, THE NEED FOR SUCH LABS IN SMALL "TEACHERS OF ENGLISH TO SPEAKERS OF OTHER LANGUAGES" (TESOL) PROGRAMS IS NOT YET SO WELL RECOGNIZED. VALID OBJECTIONS SUCH AS GREAT INITIAL EXPENSE AND LACK OF SPECIAL PREPARED MATERIALS HAVE BEEN RAISED. HOWEVER, THIS POWERFUL TEACHING DEVICE HAS THE ADVANTAGES OF PROVIDING A STRUCTURED APPROACH TO LISTENING, INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION, AND A UNIQUE DIRECTNESS OF CONTACT BETWEEN THE STUDENT AND THE LESSON MATERIALS. SOME PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS CONCERNING SELECTION OF EQUIPMENT, MATERIALS, AND METHOD AND APPROACH ARE GIVEN, FOLLOWED BY SAMPLE EXERCISES IN PRONUNCIATION AND STRUCTURE. AN EXTENSIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY IS INCLUDED. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "TESOL QUARTERLY," VOLUME 1, NUMBER 1, MARCH 1967, BY TESOL, INSTITUTE OF LANGUAGES AND LINGUISTICS, GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20007. (AMM)
