Programming for the Language Laboratory.
Turner, John D., Ed.
The present book is an attempt to stimulate thinking on the nature of the problems involved in writing material for language laboratory use in relation to the teaching of five languages widely taught in Britain today. All the contributors to this volume are language teachers currently using the language laboratory in their work. The editor notes that, although the general approach of all the contributors is broadly similar, the nature of the particular language with which they are dealing largely determine s their approach. The introductory chapter by Derek Van Abbe deals with the general principles of programing methods for the language laboratory. Chapters following deal with (1) English as a foreign language, by B. Woolrich; (2) French, by T.J. Barling; (3) German, by Eva Paneth; (4) Russian, by P.H. Meades; and (5) Spanish, by Brian Dutton. This book is a companion volume to "Using the Language Laboratory," University of London Press, 1968. (AMM)
