English as a Foreign Language: Linguistic Background and Teaching Methods.
Alkhuli, Muhammad Ali
This manual is intended primarily for university students who are preparing to teach English as a foreign language, although it is considered useful for inservice teachers also. Language, linguistics, approaches to foreign language instruction, program types and effective teaching methods are discussed in the introduction. Subsequent chapters deal with the teaching of pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing. The final two chapters deal with testing each language skill and the use of instructional aids. Each chapter presents in summary form some of the theory related to the topic, instructions on class presentation, exercises and assignments, and a discussion in the form of review questions on the chapter. Some chapters contain lesson plans. A bibliography completes the volume. (AMH)
