KRAFT, CHARLES H.; KRAFT, MARGUERITE E.

DISCUSSED IN DETAIL IN THIS HANDBOOK ARE (1) THE LANGUAGE ASSISTANT, (2) USE OF AVAILABLE WRITTEN AND AUDIOLINGUAL MATERIALS, (3) ORGANIZING ONE'S OWN MATERIAL WHEN THERE IS NO OTHER AVAILABLE, AND (4) THE BEST APPROACHES TO FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEARNING. PRACTICAL SUGGESTIONS ARE GIVEN IN NON-TECHNICAL TERMINOLOGY FOR USE OF A TAPE RECORDER, KINDS OF GRAMMARS AND DICTIONARIES, MAKING USE OF WRITTEN NOTES, AND HOW TO CONSTRUCT AND PRACTICE PATTERN DRILLS. THE AUTHORS EMPHASIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF SENSITIVITY TO THE CULTURAL CONTEXT OF LANGUAGE AND DISCUSS THE COMMON PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED IN LEARNING A NEW LANGUAGE. (JD)
