Elements of Second Language Teaching to Indigenous Peoples of what is now called Canada

Series:

Pierre Demers

For an Aboriginal, to learn a foreign or second dominant language such as English, French or Spanish, can constitute a threat to his or her identity.

The book presents a theoretical framework for different second and foreign language didactics paradigms used today in second or foreign language teaching and describes practical procedures and techniques that can be used with Aboriginal learners with respect to their own language, identity, cultural values and traditions.

The emphasis is put on the radical paradigm because it is this paradigm that best answers Aboriginal learners needs.
