An Effectiveness Study of English as a Second Language (ESL) and Chinese Bilingual Methods.
Lum, John Bernard
This study investigates which teaching style-Chinese bilingual or English as a second language--leads to greater oral English maturity and how useful the Chinese language is in helping a non-English-speaking Chinese person learn oral English. In the English-as-a-second-language method, the student's native language is used sparingly to avoid linguistic interference. Audiolingual means are used to internatlize grammatical structures. The Chinese bilingual style uses Chinese to teach English and combines techniques from other methods. Details of the study are reported; statistical ratings of oral language maturity and language skills are presented. Recommendations, topics for further study, and a bibliography are included. (VM)
