The Development of Foreign Native Speakers Training To Be Modern Foreign Languages Teachers in England: Are There Wider Lessons for the Profession?
Whitehead, Joan; Taylor, Alison
Teacher Development, v4 n3 p371-82 2000
Questioned foreign students about why they chose to study in England to become foreign language teachers and how they adjusted. Respondents adapted relatively easily to institution-based training. Though some had adjustment problems with school-based training, they also considered it extremely rewarding. They chose England because of its proximity to their countries and to get a different orientation. (SM)
