Towards A New Paradigm For English Language Teaching

by Hajime Terauchi, Towards A New Paradigm For English Language Teaching Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Towards A New Paradigm For English Language Teaching books, This book proposes a new paradigm for English language teaching based on concepts from English for Specific Purposes (ESP) research and applications as well as from growing evidence relating pattern recognition to language learning ability. The contributors to the volume argue that learners should not try to become proficient all-around users of ‘idealistic native-like’ English, but instead should be realistic about what they need to acquire and how to go about achieving their specific goals. The book discusses the present situation by describing the status quo of English language education in Japan, taking into consideration recent trends of CLIL (content and language integrated learning), EMI (English medium instruction), and TBLT (task-based language teaching) as well as the work done on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). It introduces new movements in ESP in Japan and in other Asian regions, covering topics ranging from genre analysis to corpus linguistics, and presents application examples of ESP practice in a range of educational situations in Japan from the graduate school level to elementary and middle school contexts. It also offers readers application examples of ESP practice in a range of business settings and expands the discussion to the global sphere where EAP and ESP are gaining importance as the number of ELF (English as a Lingua Franca) speakers continue to increase. The book will be of great interest to academics, researchers, and post-graduate students working in the fields of EFL and ESL.

Towards A New Primary Curriculum For South Africa

by Carol A. Macdonald, Towards A New Primary Curriculum For South Africa Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Towards A New Primary Curriculum For South Africa books, Since 1979 (Act 90: The Education and Training Act) South Africa's law has stated that an official language, i.e. English or Afrikaans, could be used as the medium of instruction after Std 2 (fourth grade) in black education. Almost without exception English was chosen by the primary schools. This means that most children are introduced to the new subjects of history, science and geography through the medium of English. These subjects are encapsulated in textbooks that children find unusable, and teachers have difficulty in understanding. In 1990 the legislation was amended so that medium of instruction now becomes a matter of negotiation between the Minister of Education and the parents. This negotiation is currently under way in many Department of Education and Training schools. This change of legislation came as a direct result of research carried out over a period of five years on the Threshold Project (1985 - 1990). The overt cause of difficulties within the education system would have seemed to be a language policy that traumatises both teachers and pupils. Inadequate time and materials are spent preparing children for achange in the medium of learning, and the cirriculum is not developed carefully enough to lead children to an understanding to a large number of abstract concepts by the fifth year of schooling.
