Training EFL/ESL Teachers for a Peaceful Asia-Pacific Region
Mirici, Ismail Hakki
Asia Pacific Education Review, v9 n3 p344-354 2008
In this experimental study which is based on qualitative and quantitative data collection from an experimental and a control group, it has been found that when some educational terms in English Language Teacher Training programs are strengthened in meaning through some adaptations to better convey the message, their effectiveness is increased. Therefore, it is suggested that foreign or second language teachers in the Asia-Pacific region should not teach the target language only for linguistic and communicative purposes but also to introduce characteristics of different cultures and to contribute to educating people who enjoy similarities, respect differences and value human rights. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
