Appropriateness and the Foreign-Language Learner.
Gannon, Roger E.
English Language Teaching Journal, v34 n2 p90-93 Jan 1980
The attitude of the target-language community toward the foreign language learner has been overlooked in language teaching. The teacher should consider the native speaker's attitude toward the language learner's command of the language, whether the native speaker views the learner's proficiency as an intrusion, and whether situations dictate language use.
