Davies, Norman F., Ed.; Allen, John R., Ed.
The first article in this issue is a response by Dieter Mindt to articles in the January, 1974, issue on the language laboratory versus the portable cassette tape recorder, in which it is argued that although the cassette recorder has many uses it cannot replace all the facilities offered by the stationary language laboratory. James R. Nord presents an argument for the use of language laboratories primarily for listening and reading skills. The remainder of the issue is devoted to bilingual education. These articles deal with the following topics; (1) bilingual education and the immigrant (editorial comment), (2) a survey of background information on bilingual education (E. C. Condon), (3) the need for pretesting in bilingual education (R. M. Preston), (4) cultural characteristics in the bilingual student (C. Sueiro-Rose), (5) the written English communicative competence of one group of Chicanos (B. L. DuBois), (6) the SWRL English language and concepts program for Spanish-Speaking children, 1971-1972 (H. Molina), (7) the use of PLATO (Programmed Logic for Automated Teaching Operations in the teaching of German reading, English as a second language and bilingual education (P. Grundlehner), and (8) the establishment of an English to Speakers of Other Languages program at an American community college (H. Aron). The newsletter concludes with a list of books, reports, periodicals recently received on the subjects of modern languages and linguistics. (LG)
