This journal for second language teachers contains seven articles. "Video in Language Teaching," by Michael Laflin, is a defense for the use of video equipment in the language classroom. In "Constructing an Index," Diane Adams-Smith and Desmond MacCullagh describe a course in medical record administration in which the students compiled a medical text-book index, thus providing them with a trial-run at setting up and maintaining a records system. Gayle Secretan, in "Role Play and Simulation Techniques for Advanced Level ESP (Science) Students," discusses the use of these techniques in teaching discourse skills. An article by Adams-Smith deals with the "1980 TESOL Convention.""The English Language Programme for Graduate Students in the University of Kuwait," by Michael Clarke and Susan Leather, outlines the course design and requirements for the ESL program. "Elaboration d'un Materiel Didactique pour un Second Semestre Debutants" (Material Preparation for Beginners, Second Semester), by J. Brunn and others, describes the choosing of objectives and the presentation of material in the French language course at Kuwait. "A Contrastive Analysis of the Noun Phrase in English and Kuwaiti Arabic" by M. Aziz F. Yassin compares the NP structure in both languages. (PJM)
