    Binding: Paperback Author: Charles F. Nunn Language: English Publication Date: 2003-09-11 Number of Pages: 256 Publisher: Cambridge University Press The Kings Of Spain Forbade Foreigners And Other 'Undesirables' To Immigrate To Spanish America. They Saw Aliens As Threatening Imperial, Religious And Mercantile Security, And It Might Therefore Be Assumed That The Spaniards Were Xenophobic And Intolerant. Dr Nunn'S Study Shows That Statutes Tell Only Part Of The Story. In The Years 1700-60 Some 3 Per Cent Of The Foreign-Born In Mexico Were Non-Spaniards Who Had Entered The Colony Illegally. Who Were These People, Where Did They Come From, And What Were Their Motives In Answering These Questions, Dr Nunn Demonstrates How Illegal Immigrants Often Escaped Official Detection And How Even Those Known To The Authorities Were Usually Allowed To Remain And Make New Lives For Themselves. Neither Protestant Nor Jew Went To The Stake In Eighteenth-Century Mexico. Harassment Was More Likely To Come From Officials Seeking Funds For An Impecunious Government Than From The Inquisition.

  • Teaching and Learning Arabic As a Foreign Language: A Guide for Teachers

  • Teaching and Learning Arabic As a Foreign Language: A Guide for Teachers
    This guide clearly and succinctly presents the basic tenets of teaching foreign languages specifically for Arabic teachers. Consolidating findings from second language acquisition (SLA) research and applied linguistics, it covers designing curricula, theory and methods, goals, testing, and research, and intersperses practical information with background literature in order to help teachers improve their teaching of Arabic as a foreign language (TAFL). Karin C. Ryding, a well-regarded scholar of Arabic linguistics and former president of the American Association of Teachers of Arabic, frames the discussion with SLA literature and suggests practical and effective ways of helping students learn. Ryding discusses issues at the core of Arabic teaching effectiveness and the achievement of communicative competence, such as the teaching of pronunciation, speaking, reading, listening, and writing; teaching mixed-level classes; creative classroom organization; corrective feedback; and use of activities and exercises, with plenty of examples from Arabic and tips for teachers. She also covers materials development and proficiency testing, providing study questions and recommended readings for each chapter. This guide, which can be used as a textbook, is the first of its kind aimed specifically at TAFL, and should be of interest to Arabic instructors-in-training, academics, graduate students, linguists, department chairs, language coordinators, and teacher trainers.
