English Language Instruction in Iran.
Strain, Jeris E.
English Record, v21 n4 p31-38 Apr 71
This article discusses English-language programs in Iran and their shortcomings. Teachers are inadequately prepared, classrooms are overcrowded, materials are not properly used, and basic writing skills have not been taught. To overcome these problems, the language skills of the teachers must be developed and teachers must be acquainted with modern techniques of foreign-language teaching. Some university programs have been improved. The greatest motivation to developing English-language programs comes from the wealth of scientific and technological knowledge that now exists in English. (VM)
