Transcript of "History of language_teaching"

  1. 1. ignatius joseph n estroga
  2. 2. WHAT IS LANGUAGE?A language is considered to be a system of communicating with other people using sounds, symbols and words in expressing a meaning, idea or thought. ignatius joseph n estroga
  3. 3. Language is a system of structurally related elements for the coding of meaning.  What dimension of language is prioritized?  Grammatical dimension  What needs to be taught?  Phonological units  Grammatical units and operations  Lexical items ignatius joseph n estroga
  4. 4.  Language is a vehicle for the expression of functional meaning.  What dimesion of language is proritized?  semantic and communicative dimension of language  What needs to be taught?  functions, notions of language ignatius joseph n estroga
  5. 5.  Language is a vehicle for the realization of interpersonal relations and for the performance of social transactions between individuals  What dimension of language is prioritized?  Interactive dimension of language  What needs to be taught?  Patterns of moves, acts negotiation and interaction found in conversational exchanges. ignatius joseph n estroga
  6. 6. Language Teaching ApproachesLanguage teaching has had many ups and downs over the years. One reason is that only few language teachers have a sense of history about their profession and thus unaware of the historical bases of the many methodological bases ignatius joseph n estroga
  7. 7. Why do we need to know the history of language teaching? It is the key to the understanding of the way things are and why they are that way. Teachers may better comprehend the forces that influence their profession Awareness to the language teaching approaches and evaluate its effectiveness ignatius joseph n estroga
  8. 8. CLASSICAL PERIOD (17th , 18th and 19thcenturies)EDUCATION AS AN ARM OF THEOCRACYFOREİGN LANGUAGE LEARNİNG ASSOCIATED WITH THE LEARNİNG OF GREEK AND LATİN1850’s: Classical method came to be known as Grammar Translation Method ignatius joseph n estroga
  9. 9. 1850’s to 1950’s: Grammar Translation Emphasis on learnıng to read & wrıte Focus on grammatical rules, syntactic structures, memorization of vocabulary and translation of literary texts Vocabulary is taught in the form of lists of isolated words. Long, elaborate explanations of the intricacies of grammar are given. Medium of instruction was the mother tongue No provision for the oral use of language ignatius joseph n estroga
  10. 10. Early Mid-20th Century Demand for ability to speak a foreign language Reformers reconsidering the nature of langauge and learning Three Reformers (the way children learned languages was relevant to how adults learned languages)  C. Marcel  F. Gouin  T. Pendergast ignatius joseph n estroga
  11. 11. Early Mid- 20th Century Marcel  Emphasized the importance of understanding meaning in language learning Pendergast  Proposed the first structural syllabus (arranging grammatical structures so that the easiest was taught first) ignatius joseph n estroga
  12. 12. F. Gouin (french teacher of Latin) Painful experience in learning German  Tried to memorize a German grammar book and a list of 248 irregular German verbs Observed his three-year old nephew Came up with the following insights  Children use language to represent their conceptions.  Language is a means of thinking, of representing the world to oneself. ignatius joseph n estroga
  13. 13. The Series method Series METHOD: a method that taught learners directly (without translation) and conceptually (without grammatical rules and explanations) a “series” of connected sentences that are easy to percieve.  Emphasized presenting each item in context and using gestures to supplement verbal meaning  Taught learners directly a series of connected sentences.  Ex. I stretch out my arm. I take hold of the handle. I open the door. I pull the door. ignatius joseph n estroga
  14. 14. Berlitz (The Direct Method)• Posited by Charles Berlitz Second language learning is similar to first language learning Emphasis on - oral interaction - spontaneous use of language - no translation - little if any analysis of grammatical rules and structures ignatius joseph n estroga
  15. 15. Direct METHOD The principles of the Direct Method  Classroom instruction was conducted in the target language  There was an inductive approach to grammar  Only everyday vocabulary was taught  Concrete vocabulary was taught through pictures and objects  Abstract vocabulary was taught by association of ideas ignatius joseph n estroga
  16. 16. The principles of the Direct Method New teaching points were introduced orally Communication skills were organized around question-answer exchanges btw. teachers and students Speech and listening comprehension were taught Correct pronounciation and grammar were emphasized ignatius joseph n estroga
  17. 17. Critiques of the Direct Method  Successful in private language schools (small classes, individual attention and intensive study)  Overemphasized the similarites btw FLLand SLL.  Reqired native speakers as teachers  Its success depended on teacher’s skill and personality more than on the methodology itself ignatius joseph n estroga
  18. 18. The Audiolingual Method (1950’s) Outbreak of the World War II  Heightened the need to become orally proficient  “the Army Method” (an oral-based approach to langauge learning)  Charles Fries and Leonard Bloomfield (structural linguist)  İdentify the grammatical structures and the basic sentence patterns  Practice these patterns by systematic attention to pronounciation and intensive oral drilling ignatius joseph n estroga
  19. 19. Features New material is presented in dialogue form There is dependency on mimicry, memorization of set phrases, and overlearning. There is little or no grammatical explanation. Grammar is taught inductively. Great importance is attached to pronunciation. Very little use of the mother tongue by teachers is permitted. Successful responses are reinforced. There is great effort to get students to produce error-free utterances. ignatius joseph n estroga
  20. 20. How ALM differs from the Direct methodALM- grammar or structure is the starting point. Languagewas identified with speech and speech was approachedthrough languageDM- No basis in applied linguistics learners are exposed to thelanguage, use it and gradually absorb its grammaticalstructuresALM differs from the Direct Method in that vocabulary andgrammar are carefully selected and graded, and it’s based onbehaviorist habit-formation theory. ignatius joseph n estroga
  21. 21. Structural-situational Language Teaching (1960’s-1080’s) Pragmatic version of Audiolingualism (UK) Language presentation and practice was situationalized All techniques of ALM + situation (use of concrete objects, pictures, and relia together with gestures and actions) Speaking and listening (most important) Gave rise to the idea of PPP (presentation, practice, production) PPP Target item presented Semi-controlled practice Free practice (role-play) ignatius joseph n estroga
  22. 22. The Designer Method of the1970’sChomsky- drew the attention to the “deep structure” of languageEarl Stevick- take account the affective and interpersonal nature of language learning and teaching ignatius joseph n estroga
  23. 23. Designer Methods (HumanisticApproaches) 1970’s 1980’s Suggestopedia (Lazanov)  Used relaxation as means of retaining knowledge and material  Music plays a pivotal role (Baroque music with its 60 beats per minute and its specific rythm created “relaxed concentration” which led to “superlearning) ignatius joseph n estroga
  24. 24. The Silent Way (CalebGattegno) Characterized by a problem-solving approach. Develops independence and autonomy and encourages students to cooperate with each other.  Learning is facilitated if the learner discovers or creates rather than remembers and repeats what is to be learned.  Learning is facilitated by accompanying (mediating) physical objects).  Learning is facilitated by problem solving the material to be learned. ignatius joseph n estroga
  25. 25. Community Language Learning Community Language Learning was created by Charles A Curran, a Jesuit priest and professor of psychology. It aimed to remove the anxiety from learning by changing the relationship between the teacher and student. In CLL, that relationship the “teacher” – who is known not as the teacher but as the “knower”, the one who knows the language – is seen as being in the same relationship to the student as the counselor is to a client : the client has a “problem” (in this case not knowing the language) which is currently creating confusion and causing problems. The counselors role is not to tell the client what to do, but to help him or her explore and resolve the problem while retaining personal autonomy. In CLL, it is therefore the learner who to a great extent decides what is ignatius joseph n estroga
  26. 26. suggestopedia Often considered to be the strangest of the so-called "humanistic approaches", suggestopedia was originally developed in the 1970s by the Bulgarian educator Georgi Lozanov. The approach was based on the power of suggestion in learning, the notion being that positive suggestion would make the learner more receptive and, in turn, stimulate learning. In order to create this relaxed state in the learner and to promote positive suggestion, suggestopedia makes use of music, a comfortable and relaxing environment, and a relationship between the teacher and the student that is like to the parent-child relationship. The original form of suggestopedia presented by Lozanov consisted of the use of extended dialogues, often several pages in length, accompanied by vocabulary lists and observations on grammatical points. Typically these dialogues would be read aloud to the students to the accompaniment of music. Thus the "concert reading" could be seen as a kind of pleasurable event, with the learners free to focus on the music, the text or a combination of the two. The rhythm and intonation of the reading would be exaggerated in order to fit in with the rhythm of the music. ignatius joseph n estroga
  27. 27. Humanistic Approaches Community Language Teaching (developed by Charles A. Curran)  Applies psychological counseling techniques to learning  Learners in a classroom were not regarded as a “class” but as a “group” in need of certain therapy and counseling.  Basic procedures of CLL derives from counselor-client relationship  Open interpersonal communication and the role of supportive community was emphasized CLL can also be linked to language alternation used in bilingual education (lesson presented first in NL and again in the SL) ignatius joseph n estroga
  28. 28. Total Physical Response (JamesAsher) Adult second language learning as a parallel process to child first language acquisition Undemanding in terms of linguistic production Attempts to teach language through physical motor activity (by the use of imperatives) ignatius joseph n estroga
  29. 29. 1980’s Interactive views oflanguage teaching Communicative Language Teaching  Learners learn a language through using it to communicate  Authentic and meaningful communication should be the goal of classroom activities  Fluency is an important dimension of communication  Communication involves the integration of different langauge skills  Learning is a process of creative construction and involves trial and error ignatius joseph n estroga
  30. 30. Spin-off approaches of CLT These approaches share the same basic set of principles of CLT, but which spell out philosophical details or envision instructioanl practices in somewhat different ways  The Natural Approach  Cooperative Language Teaching  Content- Based Language Teaching  Task-Based Language Teaching ignatius joseph n estroga
  31. 31. Language Teaching Methodology Language Teaching Methodology Theories of Language Instructional Observed and Learning Design Features Teaching Practices Objectives Syllabus Activities Roles of Teachers Roles of Learners Materials ignatius joseph n estroga
  32. 32. Theories of Language andLearning Nature of language  Nature of Language  Structural View of Learning Language  Process-oriented theories  Functional View of  What are the psychological Language and cognitive processes  Interactional View of involved (habit formation, induction, inferencing, Language generalization)  Condition-oriented theories  What are the conditions that need to be met for these learning processes to be activated? ignatius joseph n estroga
  33. 33.  Your understanding of what language is and how the learner learns will determine to a large extent, your philosophy of education, and how you teach English: your teaching style, your approach, methods and classroom technique. ignatius joseph n estroga
