Wilke, Gerhard M.
A rationale for the study of second languages focuses on problems encountered in communication which impede the development of interpersonal and international understanding. Difficulties caused by faulty translation, word order, stress, juncture, and intonation are illustrated. As a means of maintaining interest in second language learning, the author proposes the varied use of: (1) real life dialogues, (2) dialogue adaptations, (3) choral responses, (4) individual responses, (5) patterns drills, (6) patterned interrogation, (7) dramatizations, (8) songs, (9) films, (10) role-playing, (11) games, (12) dictation, and (13) written exercises.
