TEACHING ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE--A SURVEY OF THE PAST DECADE.
MARCKWARDT, ALBERT H.
THE AUTHOR HAS TRACED THE RECENT DEVELOPMENT OF THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH TO NON-NATIVE SPEAKERS IN THE UNITED STATES AND ABROAD. AFTER WORLD WAR II, THE SCOPE OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING BECAME "LITERALLY GLOBAL," EMBRACING RAPIDLY DEVELOPING PROGRAMS IN THE FAR AND NEAR EAST, EUROPE, INDIA, AND AFRICA, ALONG WITH EARLIER ESTABLISHED PROGRAMS IN LATIN AMERICA. PARTICULAR MENTION IS MADE OF THE WORK CARRIED OUT BY U.S. GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, THE FORD, ROCKEFELLER, ASIA, AND NUFFIELD FOUNDATIONS, THE CENTER FOR APPLIED LINGUISTICS, GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY, UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, AND THE TESOL ORGANIZATION. A DESCRIPTION IS GIVEN OF THE LINGUISTICALLY-ORIENTED TEACHING MATERIALS AND METHODS NOW IN USE, AND THE UNIVERSITY DEGREE PROGRAMS AND TRAINING COURSES FOR TEACHERS BEING OFFERED IN AMERICAN INSTITUTIONS. IN SUMMARY, THE AUTHOR STRESSES THE NEED FOR LONG-TERM PROGRAMS OF MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT AND TEACHER TRAINING, AND CONTINUED RESEARCH ON LANGUAGE, CULTURE, METHODOLOGY, AND LANGUAGE LEARNING. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN SUPPLEMENT NUMBER 19, OCTOBER 1967, OF "THE LINGUISTIC REPORTER," AND IS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST FROM THE CENTER FOR APPLIED LINGUISTICS, 1717 MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036.
