STUDY HINTS FOR LANGUAGE STUDENTS.
MOULTON, WILLIAM G.
THIS OUTLINE OF STUDY HINTS SUGGESTS TO STUDENTS TECHNIQUES FOR ACQUIRING BOTH SPEAKING AND READING SKILLS. MASTERY OF A SPOKEN LANGUAGE IS A MATTER OF BUILDING A SET OF AUTOMATIC HABITS--A CUMULATIVE PROCESS BASED ON IMITATION AND CONSTANT PRACTICE. STUDYING OUT LOUD AND DIVIDING THE MATERIAL AND STUDY TIME INTO SMALL UNITS ARE RECOMMENDED TECHNIQUES. READING PRACTICE SHOULD BE DONE FLUIDLY, GUESSING FROM CONTEXT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE TO AVOID TEDIOUS DICTIONARY WORK, AND WITHOUT TRANSLATION INTO ENGLISH. REPEATED READING OF COVERED MATERIAL IS MORE PROFITABLE THAN UNDUE WORRYING OVER DIFFICULT PASSAGES. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE IN A PACKAGE OF 35 BOOKLETS FOR $2.50 ($2.00 SCHOOL PRICE) FROM THE HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY, 110 TREMONT STREET, BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 02107. (RW)
