English as a Second Language in Kindergarten--Teaching Pronunciation and Grammar. Preschool Education Series, No. 2. Indochinese Refugee Education Guides.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Arlington, VA.
The sequence in which sounds, structures, and vocabulary are presented is important in teaching a second language efficiently. The guidelines given here for the teaching English pronunciation and grammar in the kindergarten are based on that premise. The guidelines are given in four sections: (1) general, for all direct language instruction; (2) how to teach the sounds of English, including suggestions for drills; (3) various structured activities for teaching the sentence patterns of English; and (4) language drills and games for the teaching of pronunciation difficulties specific to Vietnamese students.
