British Council, London (England). English Language and Literature Div.
The role and status of English instruction in Iraq is outlined. The role of English in Iraq as a whole, English instruction within the educational system, teacher qualifications, instructional materials, English instruction outside the educational system, British and American support for English instruction in Iraq, and the status of English literature are reported. English is taught as a second language from fifth grade through secondary school and is the language of instruction in technical subjects at the university level. The major weaknesses of English instruction in Iraq are the poor training of primary level teachers and the limited availability of British and American publications. (RW)
