Feasibility of Content-Based Instruction in Japanese Foreign Language Courses: Some Questions To Ask.
Willis, A. Sue
Studies in International Relations (Intercultural Relations), v19 n1 p39-60 1998
A discussion on content-based second/foreign language instruction reviews recent literature, extracts elements of content-based instruction (CBI) felt to be critical, looks at those elements from the perspective of Japanese university instruction, and poses some questions that CBI program developers might ask before proceeding. Various kinds of CBI are distinguished: theme-based instruction; sheltered content instruction; adjunct instruction; and English for special purposes. Other topics discussed include these: targeted cognitive and academic skills; classroom culture; the role of discourse communities; basic language acquisition issues in CBI; and applicable program models.
