For a number of years there has been a growing interest in the specialized field of teaching English as a second language in the United States and abroad. Many colleges and universities in this country have offered special courses for foreign students. Several institutions have offered programs for the preparation of teachers in this field for assignments at home or in other countries where exchange teachers of English are in demand or in connection with English teaching in the binational cultural institutes in those countries. Because of the new emphasis in studying English teaching abroad since 1945 and because many teachers and supervisors of English instruction have come to this country for further training, there has been a real demand for information and materials on the teaching of English as a foreign language. With this need in mind, the Office of Education published a bibliography of materials in this field. Teachers of English will find a variety of uses for the materials gathered herein. A total reading of the book will give the most complete survey of the literature available anywhere. The bibliography is intended to cover the period from 1946 to the end of 1953 and some of the more important titles which appeared during 1954 while the material was being edited. The first part of the bibliography, "Materials for the Teacher," is definitely selective in its coverage. A few titles were chosen for each section from among those more generally accepted as outstanding and which seemed most helpful for the teacher. The second part, "Materials for the Student," is more inclusive than selective of the materials the author was able to examine first hand. A supplement and index are included.
