CONTRASTIVE CULTURAL FEATURES IN FL TEACHING.
FISCHER, MILLA
CONTRASTIVE CULTURAL FEATURES SHOULD BE INCLUDED WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE GRAMMATICAL LESSON AS A MEANS OF COUNTERBALANCING THE GENERALLY UNSATISFACTORY MATERIAL USED FOR RUSSIAN TEXTS. LESSONS FOR AMERICAN STUDENTS LEARNING RUSSIAN SHOULD INCLUDE PHONOLOGICAL DRILLS ON VOWEL LENGTHS, DISTRIBUTION OF VOICED OBSTRUENTS, AND OBSTRUENT CLUSTERS, WHEREAS RUSSIAN STUDENTS LEARNING ENGLISH SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF THEIR TENDENCY TOWARD SHORTENING VOWELS AND TERMINAL UNVOICING. THE INCLUSION OF CULTURAL FEATURES IN GRAMMATICAL LESSONS CAN BE EXTENDED AND REINFORCED BY TESTING THE CULTURAL CONTRASTS SEPARATELY OR BY COMBINED TESTING ON CULTURAL CONTRASTS AND GRAMMATICAL AND PHONOLOGICAL POINTS. TWO SAMPLE LESSONS AND TESTS, IN ENGLISH AND RUSSIAN, ARE INCLUDED. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN"THE SLAVIC AND EAST EUROPEAN JOURNAL," VOLUME 11, NUMBER 3, FALL 1967, PAGES 302-307. (SS)
