Audio-Visual Aids to the Learning of EFL for Vocational Purposes.
Lee, W. R.
Audiovisual aids can be helpful in language learning associated with education in a particular vocational field. While students in all fields must master the grammar of a language, the vocabulary needed may vary according to the vocation a student has chosen. Audiovisual aids can help a student preparing for a particular occupation. Visual aids can illustrate environment and situations for language use. Recordings of people on-the-job provide examples of dialect pronunciations and idiosyncratic or so-called careless speech. Through audiovisual aids, the student can obtain a good idea of the linguistic demands of a particular job or occupation through glimpses of the work or activity to which the language relates.
