A NEW LOOK AT THE LINGUAL APPROACH.
LUDWIG, ROBERT J.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS WHO STRESS THE AUDIOLINGUAL APPROACH, ESPECIALLY IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, NEED TO BE AWARE OF CURRENT PROBLEMS, PRACTICES, AND PHILOSOPHIES. USE OF THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE IN THE CLASSROOM MUST NEITHER OVERRIDE STUDENT COMPREHENSION OR PERMIT NEGLECT OF ANY OF THE FOUR BASIC SKILLS. CONTINUOUS INSERVICE TRAINING CAN DEVELOP MORE EFFECTIVE AND STIMULATING TEACHING WHILE FOSTERING DESIRABLE ARTICULATION BETWEEN TEACHING AND SUPERVISION. WELL EQUIPPED CLASSROOMS ARE AS NECESSARY AS EXPENSIVE LABORATORIES, BUT EFFECTIVE USE OF BOTH CALLS FOR AN INCREASED SUPPLY OF CAREFULLY PREPARED TAPES AND PROGRAMS. IN ORDER TO MEET THE CHALLENGES, PROSPECTIVE TEACHERS SHOULD RECEIVE SOUND GROUNDING IN STRUCTURAL LINGUISTICS IN THEIR SPECIFIC LANGUAGE FIELD. STATE AND LOCAL BOARDS SHOULD PROVIDE SUMMER STUDY GRANTS ABROAD FOR TEACHERS AND SCHOLARSHIPS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE FOR STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL LANGUAGE ABILITY. MAINTAINING WITHIN A DISCIPLINED FRAMEWORK A DELICATE BALANCE BETWEEN INTEGRATION OF CLASSROOM WORK AND LABORATORY PRACTICE, ENCOURAGEMENT OF SPONTANEOUS RESPONSE AND ACCURACY OF EXPRESSION, RECOGNITION OF SUPERIOR ABILITY AND AWARENESS OF THE PROBLEMS OF SLOW LEARNERS PLACES GREAT DEMANDS UPON THE CREATIVITY OF THE TEACHER.
