Selected Articles on the Teaching of English As a Foreign Language.
The author has compiled a selection of his own articles published in various journals which deal with the problems of teaching English as a foreign or second language. These 15 articles, based on the author's observations from 20 years of English teaching and teacher training in developing countries, have been selected for their practical application for the classroom teacher. Some of the more particular points treated in the first part of the book are noun classes, form classes, subclasses, modifier-modifiers, time and tense, tense sequence with "if" clauses, "some" and "any," and clusters. Subjects of more general nature treated in the second part include English-teaching "myths," attitudes toward English, teaching methods, syllabuses, textbooks, the teaching of tenses, examinations, and the use of tape recorders and color slides.
