The guide is one section of a resource kit designed to assist Peace Corps language instruction coordinators in countries around the world in understanding the principles underlying second language learning and teaching and in organizing instructional programs. This section is concerned with in-service and independent language training at the overseas post. An introductory chapter gives an overview of the guide, with suggestions for identifying ongoing language learning needs for the post and a schedule for related activities. The second chapter focuses on administration of in-service and other training events, including planning and logistics, needs assessments, program design, evaluation, and final reports. Subsequent chapters address issues concerning: tutors and language informants (common challenges in tutoring situations, guidelines for tutoring, and sample practice activities) with illustrations from the field; use and design of language newsletters; and self-directed/independent learning, including learning techniques, self-assessment techniques, language learning strategies, and sample independent lessons for pre-service training.
