Which Non-Native Speaker? Differences Between International Students and U.S. Residents (Language Minority) Students.
Reid, Joy M.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n70 p17-27 Sum 1997
International students who have learned English in the classroom have different writing problems than U.S. resident language minority students who have learned English primarily by listening. Non-native speakers need information and practice in specific areas of academic prose such as content and organization. Many language minority residents also need help with grammar and written communication skills. All require patient instruction. (MSE)
