Summary The growing practice of beginning instruction in a modern foreign language in the elementary school has created a need for many classroom teachers to become oriented to a whole new field of foreign-language teaching methodology and materials. Since teachers tend to think of language instruction in terms of the English-language arts, the language which their pupils had learned to understand and speak before starting school, they need new techniques for language habit formation when a second language is introduced. While essentially, the process by which the preschool child learned his first language is duplicated, the learning activities must be suited to the interests and abilities of the age group concerned. The purpose of this publication is to suggest procedures which will be useful to teachers who need assistance in this field. This bulletin describes a variety of teaching techniques now in use and gives examples of types of materials that have been developed for the elementary school classroom. - Foreword.
