Communicative Competence and the Dilemma of International Teaching Assistant Education.
Hoekje, Barbara; Williams, Jessica
TESOL Quarterly, v26 n2 p243-69 Sum 1992
Examines the curriculum of international teaching assistant (ITA) programs within a sociolinguistic model of language use, the "communicative competence" model proposed by Hymes (1972). The authors advocate reconceptualizing language skills in terms of communicative competence allowing ITA programs to better prepare ITAs for their roles as university teachers. (73 references) (GLR)
