ROLES OF TEXTS IN LANGUAGE LEARNING PROCESS

The texts enable the learners
  - to learn meaningfully (meaningful learning; Cognitive Learning)
  - to understand the target language’s culture,
  - to improve the learners’ world knowledge,
  - to prompt the learners’ awareness,
  - to learn the language through experiencing in their own life,
  - to make it as the part of their life,

HOW TO CHOOSE THE TEXTS?

We should prefer
  - more interesting & attractive topics for the learners,
  - the topics related with the learners’ needs,
  - the authentic texts,
  - the texts involving the famous, important and strange characters,
  - the texts improving the world knowledge of the learners,
    (CEF-R; BAILLY, DEVITT, GREMMO, HEYWORTH, HOPKINS, JONES, MAKOSCH, RILEY,
    STOKS and TRIM (Ed); 2000)
  - authentic texts selected, graded and/or edited so as to be judged appropriate to the learner's
   experience, interests and characteristics.(CEF-R;2000)
  - texts composed to give contextualised examples of the linguistic content to be taught
   (e.g. in a particular course unit) (CEF-R;2000)
  - by simple exposure, but ensuring that new material is intelligible by inferencing from
   verbal context, visual support, etc CEF-R;2000)
  - the texts which are prepared by the native language users,
  - texts which cycle the previous topics, structures and words etc.
  - the texts involving the current topics with colorful pictures.

HOW TO USE THE TEXTS?

Through ;
  - focusing on the important points in the text.
  - internalizing the main and sub- skills in the texts and studying them as a unitary system,
  - experiencing the language (in &out of the class)
  - wrapping the characters up in the texts,
  - using evocative/reminiscent elements and symbols such as using clumsy pictures,
  - making a connection with the previous topics in their text books.
