Telenovelas as a Tool for Teaching.
Weyers, Joseph
IALL Journal, v30 n3 p15-26 1997
Discusses use of Spanish-language "telenovelas," serialized television programs broadcast daily and containing stories that are resolved in two to six months, as instructional material for Spanish second-language teaching. The telenovela contains authentic, comprehensible language and lends itself to an ongoing, long-term classroom activity. Approaches for incorporating the videos into the curriculum are suggested. Other, commercially prepared videos are also discussed. (MSE)
