This article on language teaching methodology calls for the integration of change in language teaching with change in the teaching profession as a whole. Historically influenced by traditional definitions of specific linguistic domains such as that of lexicon and grammar, language teaching can progress only by adopting strategies that focus more on the learner. Such strategies include emphasis on oral comprehension and composition. Language teaching is also bound by a restrictive notion of what a student is and of what student needs are. Change in second language teaching, and specifically in the instruction of English as a second language, cannot take place without change in first language teaching. (CLK)
