The Language Focus In College English

Auther : Mahmoud Okby

This research investigates a problem rooted in the perpetuated tradition of English instruction at the liberal arts college. It treats of a discernible underaction in the provision of adequate training in language proficiency for learners of English, both Native and Nonnative.

It is hypothesized that a diffusion of the necessary focus on English as a language may be accounted for in terms of:

  1. some false assumptions relative to the status of English as a language in the context of humanistic studies.
  2. Confusing language training with linguistic studies.
  3. Handing of literature within the narrow limits of verbal art forms.
  4. Equating the incidental, textual study of English with organized training in the actural use of that language in specific communication situations.
  5. Allowing little or no room in the English curriculum for the unified conduct of such training at all levels.

Following an exposition of the foregoing assumptions, a model of language use is presented, whereby a sharp focus on language training is maintained, while the natural integration of English language and literature is spontaneously effected.

For all practical purposes that can no longer be over looked, the way to achieve our ultimate objective is to devise new programs for training in consorted language behavior. Thus, by accommodating the development of English as a Medium of communication (EMC), we can equip the liberal arts graduate for the multiplicity of tasks involved in the production and perception of literature at large. His own and inclinations would be expected to guide his choices from a dispensed balance of courses and activities.
