Language Analysis and Language Teaching.
Hill, Archibald A.
This paper suggests that closer cooperation between teachers and researchers toward a simplification of linguistic terminology and language instruction objectives could result in more effective classroom presentation. Noted as a common error is the primacy given to writing as a vehicle for literature, and the minor attention given to speaking ability, to pronunciation, intonation, articulation, and spelling. Guidelines for language materials selection and teaching techniques are outlined, and modifications of the direct method are suggested. (DS)
