Teaching English for Vocational Use in an Undeveloed Country.
Lamacraft, K. R.
In an underdeveloped country such as New Guinea, the viability of the economy depends on the ability of the inhabitants to supply the skilled manpower to compete in a technological world. The key to this is largely the mastery of a world language--in this case, English. Mastery must cover the vocation of the worker, since English in a vocational setting has significant differences in structure, vocabulary, and idiom from normal conversational English. The most effective way of developing this mastery is by utilizing vocationally-qualified persons trained to apply the modern techniques of foreign language teaching in a real vocational setting.
