In Search of Real Reality.
Taylor, Barry P.
TESOL Quarterly, v16 n1 p29-42 Mar 1982
Presents rationale for basing ESL instruction on notions of reality and authenticity by focusing on inadequacy of grammatically-based approaches in teaching appropriate language use and inadequacy of notional/functional syllabus. Real communication is most likely to occur when speaker and hearer are involved, especially when learner has a stake in outcome. (Author/BK)
