If you are going abroad and want to learn the language of your host country, The Whole World Guide To Language Learning is the book for you! Whether you enroll in formal language classes or work language learning into a busy schedule, Terry Marshall's in situ (on location) approach to language learning will fit your needs.The two cornerstones of Marshall's method are the use of a mentor (a native speaker who lives in the community and serves as your guide) and what he calls the daily learning cycle of planning, practicing, communicating face-to-face and evaluating. This framework allows enormous flexibility to fit your ability level, location and time constraints. It gives you the responsibility for your learning in real interactive situations and then provides immediate feedback. Marshall gives six detailed lesson plans to get you started and plenty of ideas for further lessons, putting you in control of your language learning experience.Contents1 Settling In: Where Do I Go From Here?2 Independence: Creating and Using a Daily Learning Cycle3 Goals: Benchmarks for Evaluation4 Community: Utilizing the Living Classroom5 Plans: The Road to Language Survival6 Techniques and Topics: Where Do I Go When the Pavement Ends?7 Preparation: Getting a Head Start At HomePost-Script: In-Country Training and In Situ LearningSupplementary ReadingAnnotated BibliographyIndex
