Perspectives on Second Language Teaching.
Stern, H. H.
Six papers intended for foreign language teachers, administrators, and teachers of English as a second language are in this work. "Illusions and Realities" focuses on the complexities and problems of language teaching and proposes a coordinated program of development, backed by research, to meet current challenges. "Language Centers" discusses the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and global trends in the establishment of such institutions. In "A Comparative View", the author comments on the bases for comparison of language teaching programs and reviews the current situation in Great Britain and Europe. The relationship between psycholinguistics and second language teaching is examined prior to the final article on first and second language acquisition. (RL)
