Summary

This paper outlines a community involvement approach to advanced second language teaching and exemplifies the practical outcomes of the arguments in the paper "Education for Pluralism - The Changing Role of Language Teaching in Australia". "Community involvement" plays an integral and intergrating role and takes three forms, "extramural," formal and informal activities. Language development occurs through a self-directed grammar program, the teaching of language functions, discourse and cohesion, relevant registers, and practical use of the four macroskills. Attitudinal development is catered for through general culture learning; Social Studies; language games, reading and discussion focusing on attitudinal issues; and, especially, through community involvement. All these activities also involve major components that promote language development through meaningful use of the language. The learning strategies that are involved are outlined and the methods used to evaluate the program are referred to. The courses that utilize this approach are being developed at the Mount Gravatt College of Advanced Education, Brisbane, Australia. (Author)
