Summary

A course, complete with detailed lesson plans and practice drills, has been developed at San Diego state college, to provide the adult Spanish-speaking student with a basic foundation in American-English grammatical structure, as well as an ample daily and professional vocabulary. The idea of translating concepts and vocabulary is used to teach foreign language to adults, with minimal explanation, in a short span of time. The subsequent simplification of grammatical concepts into a series of common structural exercises and patterns coupled with a large selection of both daily and professional vocabulary gives the adult student the opportunity to develop to the full extent of his capacity, motivation, and interest. The importance is emphasized of having each student understand the concepts with which he is working and of being able to perform the mechanics of fitting words into the structural patterns before proceeding to the next concept.
