Teaching English as a Second Language: A Book of Readings.
Allen, Harold B., Ed.
This collection of 50 articles by 45 authors, largely from the United Kingdom and America, serves as an introduction for teachers preparing to teach English as a second or foreign language, or for administrators planning a program of English study as a second language. The readings are grouped in nine sections, each with an overview, according to the needs of the classroom teacher. Major consideration is given to social, psychological, and linguistic theories and approaches and to teaching English speech. Other groupings cover the teaching of English structures, vocabulary, usage and composition, and reading and literature. Methods and techniques, audiovisual aids, and testing are also represented. An index is provided. (AF)
