Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thuridny, November 4, 1971 THE LETHBRIDOE HWALD 23 Children taught through association: TV French lessons promote bilingualism Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: PIcaw. Ami, say something in your column about teachers who make family trees a class- room project. Our little niece came home yesterday with tears in her eyes. Marianne is my sister's child. She was born out of wedlock and we are raising her. Her mother is in California and her father's identity was never made known. Although Marianne is only nine years old she knows that her mother was never married. We wanted to adopt her four years ago when we took her to live with us but her mother would not agree to it. On Marianne's record at school, her mother is listed as Miss Alice warned Alice that this would be a problem, and she replied. "She'd better learn to live with it." When the teacher asked the children to draw their family tree, Marianne filled hers out as best she could. The boy across the aisle saw her tree and that started every- one else in the class to talking and laughing about it. It is my suggestion that these days, when out-of-wcdlock children are showing up in school more and more, the tree project should bo abolished. Thanks for your I get it. N.Y. DEAR T. N. V.: You've got it. I've never been very excited about family trees. Too often they turn out an abun- dance of sap. DEAR ANN" LANDERS: I am ray fiance is His mother is the problem. She is 42 years old and looks very good for her age. (Sic should. She has had everything lifted, and I do mean everything. My fiance's mother has a thing about running around half naked. She does her housework in a bikini (winter as well as summer) because she says it gives her freedom. If she is wearing r. housecoat for dinner it is never buttoned all the She manages to be falling out. just a little. Last night she cooked supper in a bra and half-slip and sat down to the table in that outfit, only she tucked a napkin in her bra. My fiance has two brolhars, one 20, another 17. I've heard them all suggest to their mother that she put some clothes on but she ignores them. Why is she like this and what can be done? Skin Flick At Home DEAR S. F.: She is like that because she is one of those seductive Moms who should have had a little counselling a few years ago. What can be done? Nothing, probably, except a concerted effort by the three boys to get Madame Pompa- dour to cover up at least when guests are present. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You are out of your corn-pickin' mind. Your advice to the woman over 40 who is a competent and experienced secretary but no 36-25-36 stank out loud. You suggested that she let her friends know she is looking for a job. Don't you realize that the losers have no friends. The moment they lose whether it's a job, a spouse, a child, or money they find out what it's like to be alone. It's the same the world over. There's a great Hurry of at- tention for four days. Then conies the well-worn phrase "If I can do anything just let me know." After that, it's a total fade-out and they are never heard from again. If you're going to be an effective adviser you'd better pull off" the rose-colored glasses and tell it like it is, Annie Baby. The 40-plus gal who wrote was giving you the straight story. Women over 40 ARE discriminated against in the job market and that's the god's truth. Texas Retread DEAR TEXAS: 'Die cynical ionc of your letter indicates that you've had some bitter experiences and I'm sorry. Yes, I know life isn't a bed of roses, but it isn't a garbage dump, either. People can be lousy, but they can be beautiful, too. 13 St. ond Ave. North Westminster Shopping Mall GIANT SAVINGS ON CARPET AND DRAPERY NO DOWN PAYMENT AND EASY MONTHLY TERMS WALL TO WALL INSTALLATION INCLUDING HEAVY WAFFLE UNDERCUSH10N.

PHONE 328-8549 OUT OF TOWN CALL COLLECT PARLONS FRANCAIS Pupils al Trafalgar School for Girls in Montreal learn io speak French by watch- ing "Parlons a 15 min'Ute televised French lesson. The program, aim- ed al eight-fo-10-year-olds, covers three levels, grades 3 to 5 and the approach of the Parlons Francois meth- od is mainly oral. Reading and writing are introduced towards the end of the Grade 5 level. ANN'F, FOTiiiCKINGIIAM MONTREAL (CT) Par- Icr.s Francais, a 15-mimitc tel- evised French lesson, is help- ing many English-speaking school children ill Quebec province lo become bilingual. "The great, thing about this program is that it uses every- day situations and vocabulary that the children can easily adapt to their daily says Betty Le Maistre, pro- gram co-ortlinator. other great thing is that it uses a medium to which the children arc al- ready The program, aimed at the eight- to 10-year-olds, covers three levels, Grades 3 lo 5, and Is one of tlu-ee language methods recommended by the Quebec department of educa- tion for use in elementary schools. Tloss Adrian, a French teacher from Sic. Hose, Que., uses Parlors Francais on his pupils and says: "Not only do the children learn to speak, but they have a much better accent. "1 have been teaching French for 22 years, all situa- tions and all methods, nr.d I definitely feel this is the best method lo come along in years. "The fact that the children are used to watching televi- sion means that they are al- ready receptive to the idea of a televised French lesson." Miss Le Maistre adds: "It's by no means a mechanical re- placement for the teacher. Hather it is a tool for the teacher to me in helping her pupils to learn to speak the language." Since the language is a spo- ken one, the approach of the Parlons Francais method is mainly oral, introducing read- ing and writing towards the end of the Grade 5 level. "A child first learns to speak his native tongue, then to read and write says the program coordinator. "That's the reasoning behind the Par- Ions Francais approach." Working along with Anne Slack, the television teacher, and their own classroom teacher, the children watch a short skit and then learn the vocabulary, phrases and songs used in Ihe program. Parlons Francais is not new. It was developed about 10 years ago by a group of American educationists and first used in the Boston area. Since then it has been adopted in other states, in parts of Al- hcrta and since 10W in Quebec, "There's no doubt that tcls- vision is an effective medium for under the proper Miss: Maistre says. Only about 25 pupils can effectively view and learn from one TV, she adds. The classrorn teacher must be present and teaching while the program is on.
