Second Language Acquisition Notes and Topics, Volume 8, Number 2. A Newsletter for Researchers and Teachers.
Chun, Judith, Ed.
This issue of the "SLANT" Newsletter for researchers in second language acquisition is highlighted by a survey on research in Canada by Fred Genesee (including a bibliography and reports of research in progress), and a report on "Second Language Acquisition in the Middle East," by Gregory James. The latter article discusses second language instruction in Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, and Egypt. The general picture in this area of the world is one of slow progress toward effective second language education. Also included are reports from second language conferences, a listing of upcoming conferences, and various announcements of interest to the field. (JB)
