Developing a Friendly and Productive Language Learning Environment (FPLE) Using the Learner as a Resource
Masaazi, Fred M.
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v3 n5 p144-154 Sep 2015
This article addresses the need to develop a friendly and productive Language learning environment (FPLE) using the learners as a resource in schools in Uganda. This is in light of the persistent challenging reality that the teaching and learning of languages in schools appears to be still largely traditional, teacher-centered and examination-oriented, thus not as learner friendly and productive as the case should be. A teacher-centered approach alienates the learner from the instructional process and this affects their levels of attainment and performance. As a result, performance in languages in Uganda is not as good as it should be. The article gives an introduction, explores the nature, characteristics and functions of language, outlines the aims of learning Language and language skills, theoretical review, examines the context of a productive language learning environment, with focus on the roles of the teacher and learner as resource persons, and lastly presents the psychological, sociological and educational advantages of a productive language learning environment.
