Providing Communication Experiences in Programed Foreign Language Instruction.
Brown, George H.
Two recently developed techniques in programed instruction were designed to offer students genuine communication experiences in a foreign language. In "simulated tutoring," a recording was made of only the tutor's voice as he tutored a live subject in the correct pronunciation of a short dialog. The student subsequently responding to the pre-recorded utterances experienced the illusion that a live teacher was tutoring him. In "simulated conversation," a student was given information relevant to a communication situation (e.g., making a purchase) which was then simulated for him on a tape in a foreign language. On the tape he was confronted with a relatively unpredictable set of questions and comments, to which he had to generate appropriate responses. (Author/AF)
