Adapting to Changing Needs: A Teacher-Led Japanese FLES Program
Romeo, Ken; Dyer, Margaret
Learning Languages, v10 n1 p12-15 Fall 2004
When designing a language program, it is often difficult to create a workable balance between a desired ideal and the realities imposed by limited resources. Ultimately, the task is to make the best use of the available materials within the allotted time frame by drawing on the creativity and expertise of the staff. The following is a brief portrayal of how teachers at one elementary school have found a way to create a context-rich environment for language learning by drawing on their own language expertise. Results show that not only are students motivated, but their proficiency increases significantly over the span of one year. Teachers are stimulated and empowered by the nature of the program.
