Adult Student Magazine, n7 Nov 1981
Written for, by, and about adult students, this issue consists of a series of articles and features dealing with learning English as a native and as a second language. The first section contains six articles covering the following aspects of English and language learning: English as an interesting language that reflects the freedom of its speakers; what it's like to learn and use English as a second language; humorous examples of grammatical mistakes; a hypothetical look at a world without language; and suggestions for improving one's vocabulary. Presented next are the story of a man who learned to read while in prison and an interview of a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives who was himself the graduate of a high school equivalency program. A section devoted to the writing of adult students concludes the magazine. An accompanying teacher's guide consists of guidelines for using the magazine in an adult education class as well as worksheets dealing with the articles contained in the magazine. (Other issues of this magazine are available separately--see note.) (MN)
