Primacy of Receptive Skills in Foreign Language Learning.
Van Parreren, Carel
System, v11 n3 p249-53 1983
Argues for giving precedence to the development of listening and reading skills, while postponing speaking and writing, in order to acquire a solid foundation for later speaking. Emphasizes bilingual exercises comprised of listening, supported by written texts. This method also preferable for adult learners because of inhibitions and anxiety about oral language production.
