Summary

In teaching English as a foreign language overseas, the teacher is often more successful than the teacher of English as a second language in the United States. Required to be constantly alert so that cultural assumptions in the teaching materials are not slighted, he must present all levels of speech and leave nothing about the language and culture to chance. The teacher who never leaves his home country encounters much the same situation and problems of adjustment when working with students from another cultural background. He must function in a new cultural situation without the recognition overseas life forces on one's awareness of the cultural differences. The program in Foreign Language Education at the University of Texas has been arranging workshops in Bilingualism and the Teaching of English as a Second Language for teachers in the school system of Texas, and has instituted cultural sensitivity training as a regular workshop feature. The workshop format includes: (1) an anthropological presentation and discussion of cultural differences; (2) a second language situation in which the teacher fills out a standard job application form in an unknown language; (3) a technical explanation of the unknown language; (4) small group discussions of teaching approaches; and (5) technical content and cultural sensitivity sessions.
