Literacy in ESL: Pedagogical and Cultural Pathfinding in Fiji.
Lotherington-Woloszyn, Heather
Although English is a colonial heritage in Fiji, it links the country's different ethnic groups and is the language of instruction for formal education. This paper examines pedagogical and cultural implications of the present primary English curriculum, based on findings from an empirical study of primary English teaching in Fiji. It reviews the materials and methodology in large-scale use in the country and demonstrates how present English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teaching is at odds with both curriculum aims and children's real needs for ESL skills. Innovations in teaching methods and materials are discussed. Contains 8 references. (LB)
