Teaching English to the Vietnamese -- Textbooks. General Information Series, No. 5. Indochinese Refugee Education Guides.
Center for Applied Linguistics, Arlington, VA.
The purpose of this bulletin is to give the American with no prior experience in teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) some idea of the range of EFL textbooks, and what they are like. It points out that most EFL texts published in America in the last 15 years are based on the audio-lingual method and that they are developed with one of the following categories of students in mind: (1) elementary students, (2) junior high or high school students, or (3) adults. The bulletin discusses such topics as: (1) what the EFL textbook does for you, the most important things being the sequencing of materials and the selection of vocabulary; (2) materials specifically geared to Vietnamese; and (3) language materials developed for other problems.
