Transcultural Picture Word List: For Teaching English to Children from Any of Twenty-One Language Backgrounds.
Donaldson, Judy P.
This instructional aid for elementary and secondary teachers of English as a second language recommends itself especially to those situations where a bilingual teacher and a formal bilingual program are not available. The first item presented is a letter to parents translated into each of the 21 languages covered. The letter urges the parents to reinforce at home what the student is being taught in school. Information on syntax variants and common pronunciation problems is then presented for each language. Several sections are devoted to transcultural picture word lists of things, opposites, place or position, actions, colors, numbers, and shapes, with the English word for the object, action, etc. printed under the picture. The book concludes with the "220 Basic Sight Word List" of Dolch in the various languages. (JB)
