FOREIGN AND SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNING IN THE PRIMARY SCHOOL.
DODSON, C.J.
EXPERIMENTS ON LANGUAGE LEARNING WERE CONDUCTED IN WALES WITH 26 8-YEAR OLD CHILDREN, OF MIXED ABILITY, BILINGUAL IN ENGLISH AND WELSH, AND ABOUT TO LEARN GERMAN. A STUDY OF THE LEARNING PROCESSES WAS MADE BY A VARIETY OF TESTS USED TO MEASURE LISTENING, UNDERSTANDING, IMITATING, AND WRITING. PRESENTED IN THIS DOCUMENT ARE THE DIFFERENT EXPERIMENTS, THE EXPLANATORY CHARTS, AND THE RESULTS WHICH CAN HELP IN SETTING UP THE MOST EFFICIENT PROGRAM FOR A LEARNER TO ACQUIRE AND RETAIN SENTENCE MEANING WHILE LEARNING TO PRONOUNCE THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE. ANOTHER SECTION OF THE PAMPHLET DEALS WITH METHODOLOGY, AND DETAILS SUCH TOPICS AS USING INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, EMPLOYING SPECIFIC TEACHING TECHNIQUES AND LESSONS, VARYING CLASSROOM SITUATIONS, AND USING AUDIOVISUAL AIDS AND THE LANGUAGE LABORATORY. A SECTION ON THE INFANT SCHOOL GIVES SUGGESTIONS FOR A LANGUAGE COURSE BEGINNING AT THE NURSERY LEVEL FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEVELOPING TRULY BILINGUAL INDIVIDUALS. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE BY TITLE FOR 5 SHILLINGS FROM THE DEAN, FACULTY OF EDUCATION, UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF WALES, CAMBRIAN STREET, ABERYSTWYTH, WALES. (SS)
