Research on Teaching English in Danish Schools 1959-1965.
Florander, Jesper; Jansen, Mogens
A report of experimentation in three programs in the teaching of English, under the direction of the Danish Institute for Educational Research is presented. Six schools in the county of Holbaek (50 pupils from each school) participated in one program, the object of which was to find the optimum age level at which to begin the teaching of English. The different schools involved introduced instruction in English at different grade levels, beginning in the fourth grade. The program at Gladsaxe (92 classes of about 25 pupils each) investigated the importance of the age level for beginning instruction, length of lessons, and the teaching method and materials. The program at Rodding, based on Swedish educational materials, was limited to six classes at one school; the objective was to try out the effectiveness of audiovisual aids in elementary language study and to determine whether learning through "pure imitation" is more effective at an early than at a more advanced age. A brief description of the experimental plans, teaching methods and materials, evaluations and tests is given for each program. (AMM)
