A Student's Guide to Effective Foreign Language Study.
A study guide developed to help foreign language students learn languages more effectively and efficiently provides specific suggestions for developing study habits to complement the teacher's instructions. An introductory section gives general remarks on studying another language, including both general study suggestions and the recommendation to practice out loud. Subsequent sections address practicing pronunciation and intonation, developing listening comprehension skills, developing speaking skills, developing reading skills, doing grammar exercises, learning vocabulary, using the language laboratory, using audiovisual aids (videotape, films, and slide programs), text analysis, and developing skills in translation. In some sections, study suggestions are specifically sequenced. A list of references is appended. (MSE)
