|Title:||Three Models in Second Language Pedagogy|
|Source:||Prabhu, N.S. (1989). Three Models in Second Language Pedagogy. Journal of English and Foreign Languages 3 (June) : 1-14. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.|
|Abstract:||An attempt is made to synthesize a variety of concepts & proposals relating to three different language pedagogical models. Two involve psycholinguistic issues whereas the third is sociolinguistically oriented. The guided grammar-construction model suggests that learners should construct their own grammar while learning a language & that teachers can beneficially guide this process. The simulated communication model is directed toward language performance rather than competence & involves a broadened scope of teaching. The autonomous grammar-development model, like the first model, focuses on linguistic competence. However, it differs in viewing the learner's internal system as something that develops by itself & that pedagogical activity can only provide a stimulus. It is suggested that the most effective approach to language teaching may be one that combines elements of all three models. B. Annesser Murray.|
