Language: Some Suggestions for Teachers of English and Others in Primary and Secondary Schools and in Further Education.
Department of Education and Science, London (England).
This discussion of language traces the relations between language, thought, and culture and illustrates the importance of language, of the English language in particular, in world developments. Suggestions are made for teaching the mother tongue. Teaching English in England is discussed as is teaching Welsh and English in Wales and French in France. Chapters concerning teaching English in England consider reading in primary schools, composition in secondary schools, and communication problems in higher education. One part of the book deals with the imaginative and creative aspects of speech and writing in a discussion of language and literature. Language and broadcasting are also discussed, and the effect of broadcasting on the use of language is considered. (Author/VM)
