Audio-Lingual English; a Self-Instructional Language Laboratory Program.
Cornelius, Edwin T., Jr.
This course (a series of six student workbooks, 230 tapes, and a teacher's guide containing a tapescript key) is designed for older children and adults learning English as a foreign or second language, or for speakers of nonstandard English dialects. Programed for self-instructional use and a minimum of assistance from the teacher, the course proceeds from beginning through intermediate levels and requires approximately 250 hours of language laboratory study and 50 hours of supplementary classroom practice. It may be used in an intensive, full-time training program, a non-intensive program, or for home-study with individual tape recorders. The materials provide for four stages of learning--Workbook 1 involves the development of speech habits (the sound features and intonational patterns) in English, and the building of an "acoustic imagery" of the language. Workbook 2 conditions the making of automatic responses, for the development of fluency and naturalness. Workbooks 3, 4, and 5 involve the process of vocabulary development and control of grammatical structures. Workbook 6 concentrates on techniques of stimulating the learner into generating English speech forms. Other publications in the Collier-Macmillan English Program (e.g., English 900 Series) may be used in correlation with this series. Details are given in the Teacher's Guide. (AMM)
