Providing Communication Experiences in Programed Foreign Language Instruction.
Brown, George H.
This paper describes two techniques designed to offer students genuine communication experiences in a foreign language. In "simulated tutoring," a recording of the tutor's voice is made while he tutors a live subject in the correct pronunciation of a short dialogue. Students subsequently responding to the prerecorded utterances experience the illusion that a live teacher is tutoring them. In "simulated conversation," the student is given information relevant to a communication situation (e.g., making a purchase) which is then simulated for him on tape in the foreign language. He is then confronted, on tape, with a relatively unpredictable set of questions and comments to which he must generate appropriate responses. Both techniques are intended to increase student motivation in programed instruction. (Author/RL)
