Does the Foreign-Language Teacher Have to Teach English Grammar?
Twaddell, W. Freeman
PMLA, v77 n2 p18-22 May 1962
This topic is examined by posing three questions: (1) "Why should a foreign-language teacher teach grammar?" (2) "If he should teach grammar, why English grammar?" (3) "If he has to teach English grammar, why didn't his students' English teacher teach them English grammar?" The answers consider the role of the teacher in general, the instructive value of the contrasts between two grammatical systems, and the roles of and relationship between the foreign language teacher and the English teacher.
