Implications of Language Learning Theory for Language Planning: Concerns in Bilingual Education. Papers in Applied Linguistics, Bilingual Education Series: 1.
Paulston, Christina Bratt
This paper is a statement, from the viewpoint of a language teaching specialist, of the contributions language learning theory could make to language planning. It consists of three parts: (1) a conceptual framework of language planning used to identify ways in which a linguist might contribute; (2) a summary of basic concepts of language learning theory, and (3) a review of literature on selected problems in bilingual education in order to examine the validity of any implications from language learning theory. The examination of several language learning theories leads to the conclusion that teachers in bilingual programs should have training in the methods of teaching English as a second language and that the socioeconomic and cultural background of the non-English-speaking student cannot be ignored if efficient learning is to take place.
