Donation of pamphlet of lectures by C.C. Fries and W. Freeman Twaddell, from Rob Lowe

Writing about web page

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).
