EFL and Educational Reform: Content-Based Instruction in Argentina.
Snow, Marguerite Ann; Cortes, Viviana; Pron, Alejandra V.
Forum, v36 n1 Jan-Mar 1998
Discusses initial experiences with content-based instruction in Argentina. The new approach was precipitated in part by educational reform. Suggests that the dramatic shift from a grammar-based approach to a communicative approach, and the use of language as a tool for instruction may become overwhelming for most teachers. (Author/VWL)
