PROFESSOR GLEN D. LOVELACE

PRESENTS:
An Alternative to "Schooling": Teach Yourself!"

The Japanese word 'kyoiku' means "to put in" (as in schooling or instruction as defined under 'usage' in many dictionaries); it is not equivalent to education from the Latin 'educare', meaning "to lead out". A student must teach oneself to speak a foreign language; an educator's primary role is to encourage and assist.

Profile of a Japanese 1st-year college or university student: Student has formally memorized English vocabulary, spelling, and grammar for at least six years (maybe with the part-time help of a native speaker) and can read and write enough to have passed the entrance examination. Student wants to learn to speak English but is afraid to loose face by making a mistake or being laughed at for looking foolish (an uncontrollable trembling of the upper lip -- impossible to imitate -- reveals this fear).
Obviously, spontaneous spoken English cannot be memorized; textbooks, video tapes, pattern repetitions, etc. will help to make it possible, but the only way to learn to speak is to speak, make mistakes, be helped, teach yourself, speak, make mistakes, be helped, teach yourself ... ad infinitum.
My method in an Oral English class (for any age or occupation) is basically Socratic and involves questions (semi-guided for 1st-year students, spontaneous after that) and answers between myself and a student or only between the students.
At the end of my presentation I will demonstrate by calling upon members of the audience to "teach themselves to speak English".
