ENGLISH AS THE SECOND LANGUAGE IN QUEBEC: A TEACHER PROFILE
AbstractThe state of the teaching of English as a second language in the French-speaking schools of Quebec has become a critical issue now that alternative means of learning English, including the informai but powerful processes of acquiring it in the context of work, are to be closed off. Acheson and his co-authors have inquired into the prevailing characteristics of the teacher of English as second language in a Quebec school, and reveal some of the severe deficiencies in knowledge and attitude under which this work is typically carried on. The implications for the future of mutual understanding between the two adjacent cultures are distressing, and the authors make a strong case for what appears to be the obvious remedy.
