LANGUAGE LEARNING--THE INTERMEDIATE PHASE. REPORTS OF THE WORKING COMMITTEES OF THE NORTHEAST CONFERENCE ON THE TEACHING OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES, 1963.
BOTTIGLIA, WILLIAM F.
THESE REPORTS OF THE WORKING COMMITTEES OF THE 1963 NORTHEAST CONFERENCE ON THE TEACHING OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES ANALYZE PROBLEMS CONFRONTING LANGUAGE TEACHERS AS THEY PROGRESS FROM THE AUDIOLINGUAL ORIENTATION OF THE ELEMENTARY LEVELS TO THE INTERMEDIATE PHASE IN A CONTINUUM OF LANGUAGE STUDY. IN AN ATTEMPT TO DISCOVER WHETHER BILINGUALISM CAN BE ACHIEVED IN AN ORDINARY CLASSROOM SITUATION AND, IF SO, WHAT CAN BE DONE TO MAKE IT A FACT IN A "COORDINATE SYSTEM" WHERE THE NATIVE AND TARGET LANGUAGES OPERATE INDEPENDENTLY, SIMON BELASCO'S COMMITTEE DISCUSSES IN THE FIRST REPORT SUCH FACTORS INVOLVED IN A WELL-DESIGNED INTERMEDIATE SYSTEM AS THE DETERMINATION OF LANGUAGE ACHIEVEMENT, THE COMPLEXITIES OF THE MORE ADVANCED GRAMMATICAL PATTERNS, AND THE NATURE OF ANALOGIZING AND AUDIO-COMPREHENSION. THE SECOND REPORT, PRODUCED BY GEORGE A SCHERER'S COMMITTEE, INCLUDES A DESCRIPTION OF THE DOMAIN AND THE 5-STAGED LEARNING SEQUENCE INVOLVED IN READING FOR MEANING, AS WELL AS DISCUSSIONS OF ITS AUTOINSTRUCTIONAL POTENTIAL, PROGRAMED READING WITH GRAMMAR AND VOCABULARY BUILD-UP OBJECTIVES, THE ADAPTATION OF LITERARY SELECTIONS, AND THE DETERMINATION OF READABILITY. FOUR APPENDIXES DEALING WITH CULTURAL MEANING AND ITS COMPONENTS, COORDINATE AND COMPOUND BILINGUALISM, AUDIOLINGUAL BACKGROUND FOR READING, INFERENCE, AND FREQUENCY LISTS AND ASSOCIATIVE NETWORKS PRECEDE A BIBLIOGRAPHY. THE FINAL REPORT, DEVELOPED BY MARINA PROCHOROFF'S COMMITTEE, NOT ONLY CLARIFIES THE SERIES OF STEPS THAT LEAD TO THE LONG-RANGE OBJECTIVE OF WRITING AS EXPRESSION, BUT ALSO GIVES EXAMPLES IN FRENCH, GERMAN, RUSSIAN, AND SPANISH OF SUCH WRITING EXERCISES AS MINIMAL CHANGE, DIRECTED AND CITED NARRATION, FILL-IN, CHANGE FROM DIRECT TO INDIRECT DISCOURSE, PARALLEL WRITING, RESUME OR PRECIS WRITING, AND WRITTEN DESCRIPTION FROM VISUAL REPRESENTATION. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE AS NUMBER NEC 63 FOR $2.50 FROM THE MLA/ACTFL MATERIALS CENTER, 62 FIFTH AVENUE, NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. 10011. (AB)
