Summary

This booklet comments on the second dialect teaching situation with special emphasis given to the role of the native dialect, the definition of the standard dialect, special factors affecting the pupil, teaching methodology, and teacher training. The first section examines dialects associated with the influence of a specific foreign language, pidgin or creole, and social or regional substandard varieties of English with particular emphasis on the latter and its pedagogical implications. The second section discusses the definition of standard English, and the third section focuses on special considerations concerning the learning situation of the pupil, that is, integrative versus instrumental motivation and differences between the theories of cultural deprivation and cultural differences. Teaching methodology, especially foreign language teaching, is discussed in section four. Finally, teacher training recommendations stressing the need for teachers to possess an attitude which recognizes that substandard dialects are regular systems of communication in their own right are discussed in the last section.
