ORDER OF PRESENTATION OF GRAMMATICAL STRUCTURES IN THE TEACHING OF RUSSIAN.
ARONSON, HOWARD I.
AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE GRAMMATICAL SYSTEM OF A FOREIGN LANGUAGE GIVES THE BEGINNING STUDENT A FOUNDATION UPON WHICH THE BASIC SKILLS CAN BE DEVELOPED. THUS, THE TEACHER'S PRESENTATION OF THE TARGET LANGUAGE SHOULD ADHERE TO THE BASICALLY LINGUISTIC PRINCIPLES OF TEACHING, IN ORDER, THE BASIC FORMS, GRAMMATICAL CATEGORIES, STRUCTURES WHICH HAVE NO OR MARKEDLY DIFFERENT ENGLISH EQUIVALENTS, AND STRUCTURES OCCURRING MOST FREQUENTLY. AS AN EXAMINATION OF SEVERAL GRAMMATICAL POINTS ILLUSTRATES, THIS APPROACH IS PARTICULARLY APPLICABLE AND IMPORTANT IN TEACHING RUSSIAN WHERE, ALTHOUGH THERE ARE TRANSLATIONAL EQUIVALENCES TO ENGLISH, THERE ARE DEFINITE STRUCTURAL DIFFERENCES. TO PREVENT INTERFERENCE FROM THE STUDENT'S NATIVE TONGUE, A CAREFULLY ORGANIZED PRESENTATION OF THE WELL-DEFINED STRUCTURAL LINGUISTIC HIERARCHY OF RUSSIAN MUST BE DEVELOPED BY COOPERATIVE EFFORTS FROM BOTH THE STRUCTURAL LINGUIST AND THE LANGUAGE TEACHER. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "THE SLAVIC AND EAST EUROPEAN JOURNAL," VOLUME 10, NUMBER 2, SUMMER 1966, PAGES 181-190. (SS)
