Teaching English as a Second Language to Adults: Textbooks for Basic Courses. Indochinese Refugee Education Guides, No. 2.
This annotated bibliography cites materials for teaching English as a second language (ESL) to Vietnamese and Cambodian adults. It is designed to teach the teacher with no previous training or experience in ESL techniques. The materials listed are specifically for adults and secondary school students, in that they take into account the learning habits and interests of older students. They also provide information about life in America, information useful to adults adjusting to a new environment. The bibliography is preceded by a discussion of what ESL materials are, what they provide, how they can be used by a teacher inexperienced with ESL techniques, and how to select ESL materials. The bibliography is divided into three main sections: (1) Survival Courses; (2) Full-Scale Extensive ESL Courses for Adults; and (3) Supplementary Recorded Tapes and Cassettes. The guide is available from the five regional bilingual education centers. (Author/CLK)
