New Directions and Changes for Teaching High School English as a Second Language in Puerto Rico: Ideas Derived from Transformational Grammar and Other Contemporary Readings.
Lugo, Mabel Erb. de
This paper examines the important role of English in Puerto Rico and the present situation of Puerto Rico's English language program. The writer gives a brief historical background of linguistics and discusses recent theories of language acquisition and transformation generative grammar. Possible applications and implications of these theories for learning and teaching English as a second language are suggested. Numerous conclusions and recommendations are made for the improvement of the Puerto Rican English program, particularly at the secondary level. A comprehensive bibliography is also included. (HW)
