Wen Shan Conference on English Teaching, October 25, 2003
language learning syllabus
This is how I learn Arabic, and how I design courses to learn Arabic
If you want to learn a language, or if you want to teach a foreigner your language, here's how
Many teachers don't believe it is possible to teach using only target language discourse and
Many teachers feel that script / caligraphy is too great a leap for the students.
Many TL teachers think students need heavy L1 support.
(Grammar study is ok, as long as it's discussed in TL).
Many learners believe that they must have L1 support.
Those in this group who are themselves language teachers often teach their own classes using TL only.
That's it, that's the syllabus.
