Meeting the English Language Needs of Indochinese Students. Educational Administrator Series, No. 2. Indochinese Refugee Education Guides.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Arlington, VA.
This guide is intended to assist school administrators in their initial planning for meeting the needs of Vietnamese and other Indochinese refugees entering their schools. To insure that the students can participate in the activities of the school and community as rapidly as possible, teaching the English language must be given high priority, and at the same time the students' cognitive development must be monitored. The guide answers the following questions: (1) Can the school expect Indochinese children to adjust to the school without special provision? (2) How much English can we expect Vietnamese students to know when they come to the school? (3) What models exist for organizing instruction in English for speakers of another language? (4) How much time should be budgeted for the teaching of English? (5) What pitfalls should a school avoid in attempting to meet the English needs of Indochinese students? (6) Where can a school turn for help in teaching English to Vietnamese students? An annotated bibliography follows the text. (Author/TL)
