The English as a Second Language Programs of the American and British Binational Institutes in Mexico.
Decker, Donald Milton
The author feels that one of the most significant contributions to English teaching in Mexico today is being rendered by the 14 American-Mexican and three Anglo-Mexican cultural relations institutes or "binational centers." These autonomous institutions receive the cooperation of agencies of the American and British governments and exert a "noteworthy influence" throughout the Republic of Mexico and even beyond into major portions of Spanish-speaking America. The present study describes these institutes as follows: (1) The Mexican American Binational Centers-- an Overview, (2) The Mexican American Cultural Institute of Mexico City, and (3) The Anglo-Mexican Cultural Institutes. The author discusses courses, teacher training, aims and methods, materials, testing and grading, and data on students and teachers. (AMM)
