Toward a Philosophy of Second-Language Learning and Teaching. The Foreign & Second Language Education Series.
Chastain, Kenneth
This study presents a synthesis of major dimensions of the second language teaching-learning process. The first four chapters survey some factors which are considered important in this process and examine what is known and unknown about each one. Subsequent chapters deal with the following problems: (1) language learners' errors, (2) considerations on a rationale for composition and a system of accountability, (3) evaluating expressive objectives, (4) evaluating listening comprehension tests, and (5) a sample program for testing linguistic elements and using them for communication. The final chapter deals with student reactions to second language learning and second language classes. (Author/AMH)
