Introduction to English Language Teaching, Volume 3: Methods at the College Level.
Ghosh, R. N.; And Others
This volume is intended to introduce college teachers of English as a second language (ESL) to some of the basic concepts underlying the teaching of English in India. A theoretical framework is formulated within which problems such as the planning of syllabuses and designing of courses and tests may be understood. At the same time, practical suggestions are offered to the classroom teacher, who will benefit from insights made available by recent advances in the language sciences and psychology. Eighteen chapters cover principles of first and second language acquisition, English usage, curriculum and course design, basic concerns of ESL teachers, teaching strategies, testing, and individual language skills (reading of prose and poetry, grammar, and composition).
