TEFL AND THE CULTURALLY DEPRIVED.
REGAN, TIMOTHY F.
TWO PROBLEMS ARE IDENTIFIED IN TEACHING CULTURALLY DEPRIVED ADULTS--(1) THE CULTURAL DISORIENTATION OF THE LEARNER, WHICH DOES NOT PERMIT HIM TO IDENTIFY WITH THE TEXT CONTENT, TEACHER OR THE COURSE GOALS, AND (2) THE COMPLEX PROBLEMS OF LEARNING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE. AN ATMOSPHERE OF UNDERSTANDING AND THE ADOPTION OF PROGRAMED MATERIALS DESIGNED WITH THE CULTURALLY DIFFERENT IN MIND ARE SEEN AS TRENDS TOWARD SOLVING THE FIRST PROBLEM. LEARNING A SECOND LANGUAGE IS DIFFICULT, SINCE MOTIVATIONAL FACTORS ARE DIFFERENT FOR ADULTS, AND TIME, EXPOSURE, AND PRACTICE PERIODS ARE LESS THAN IN LEARNING THE FIRST LANGUAGE AS A CHILD. (SF)
