Many thanks to Rob Lowe for his recent donation to the Warwick ELT Archive of a rare item he obtained in Tokyo - Lectures by C.C. Fries and W.F. Twaddell, published in 1958 for the Englsh Language Exploratory Committee, Tokyo, by Kenkyusha. Charles Fries (19887-1967) was the principal founder of the 'Oral Approach' - a precursor of audiolingualism - which was diffused in Japanese schools from the mid-1950s to mid-1960s (see Lynn Earl Henrichsen's book Diffusion of Innovations in English Language Teaching: The ELEC Effort in Japan, 1956-1968).
