A Selected Annotated Bibliography for Teaching English to Speakers of Vietnamese. Vietnamese Refugee Education Series, No. 4.
Robson, Barbara, Comp.; Sutherland, Kenton, Comp.
This annotated bibliography represents a selection of materials which are of most immediate practical relevance and utility to those concerned with the English language education at all levels of refugees from Indochina, particularly Vietnam. An effort was made to include a basic and up-to-date selection of professional materials for those with little prior preparation in this area. Availability was another criterion in selecting the materials. Materials on Vietnamese language and culture are also included, because it is felt that English instruction should be carried out in a context sensitive to the cultural shock of the refugee, and because it is felt that a bilingual or a bilingual support program is in the long run the best approach to the instruction of the refugee. Materials are listed under the following headings: materials for children, including audiovisual aids; materials for adults; dictionaries and reference materials; vocational English; adult basic literacy materials; testing materials; linguistic and cultural reference materials; and references for teachers.
