A Bi-Modality Approach to Language Program Design.
Wongsothorn, Achara
PASAA: A Journal of Language Teaching and Learning in Thailand, n18 v2 p36-47 Dec 1988
A summer intensive English language course is described that is offered by the Chulalongkorn University Language Institute (CULI) in Thailand to university instructors and government officials. A writing program, which constitutes one-fourth of the entire course, consists of 10 units incorporating main functions and topics of English use found in a previous CULI study to be important in the Thai government sector. Writing is viewed as a dynamic, interactive, and integrative skill activity, and the program merges listening texts and video input with reading texts to maximize the output via the graphic mode. Students are required to listen-write, observe-write, read-write, listen-read-write, and observe-read-write within specified domains of language functions and topics. Aspects of program design, implementation, and evaluation are reviewed. Sample program units are included. Contains 9 references. (LB)
