A Practical Guide to the Teaching of Spanish.
Rivers, Wilga M.; And Others
This book is one in a series of practical guides for teaching foreign languages. Designed for future teachers of Spanish in high school or at the undergraduate level, as well as for practicing teachers who are interested in keeping up with the latest material in their field, this book re-evaluates foreign-language teaching methodology in the light of recent research in psychology and linguistics. Emphasis for the teaching of both the spoken and written language is on using language in normal ways from the earliest stages. Every aspect of language learning which contributes to effective language use is discussed: oral communication, pronunciation, grammar instruction, listening comprehension, reading comprehension, and writing. Theoretical discussions begin each chapter, and are applied to practical issues throughout. Numerous examples and exercises demonstrate the classroom applications of proposed activities and techniques. The guide includes a comprehensive index and a general bibliography. (Publisher/DB)
