The Problem of False Language Awareness.
Svalberg, Agneta M. -L.
Language Awareness, v10 n2-3 p200-12 2001
Discusses the status of grammar rules in language awareness approaches where learners are encouraged to notice and reflect on regularities in the language. Examines the accuracy of rules transmitted in English-as-a-foreign-language classrooms. Argues that teachers' awareness of the language is sometimes misinformed and that half-truths may be presented to learners for the sake of simplifying a complex reality. (Author/VWL)
