English Language Teaching by Foreigners in Harbin, Northeast China.
Bishop, Ann Elise
Three types of English classes conducted by foreigners in Harbin, Northeast China, are described. These classes for English teachers, for students, and for science teachers are described in three separate chapters. The section on English teacher training classes discusses goals, the composition of the student body, the differences between classes at liberal arts universities and those at scientific institutes, and methodology. The second section describes classes conducted for science teachers at universities and institutes. The emphasis is on a description of course content, emphasis on listening and speaking skills, texts used, and teaching techniques. The student classes are discussed in a third part. It is noted that these classes were not as high a priority as those for teacher training, and if a foreign teacher was not available they would be taught by Chinese student-teachers. A final chapter gives some indications on other English language related activities foreign teachers are asked to engage in, such as lectures, making tape recordings, and advising English teachers.
