AN EVALUATION OF THE MATERIAL “BASIC ENGLISH III” FOR THE SECOND YEAR NON- ENGLISH MAJOR STUDENTS AT BAC GIANG TEACHERS’ TRAINING COLLEGE

1. Rationale of the thesis Materials play an important role in the process of language teaching and learning as appropriate materials can stimulate effective teaching and learning. Thus, to have a successful language- teaching program, it is necessary to have good materials, especially in Vietnamese setting. English has been taught in Bac Giang Teachers Training College (BGTTC) since 1980s, and English course books for non- English major students have been changed from time to time to suit the training objectives as well as the students’ needs. Although many textbooks are available on the market, it is really difficult to choose the materials that meet the needs of non- English major students whose English proficiency is comparatively varied. Due to these reasons, the teachers of English at BGTTC decided to produce the materials suitable for their own students. Undeniably, since these in- house materials were put to use, they have had certain positive impacts on language teaching and learning at BGTTC. But there remain some complaints and dissatisfaction. Until now, no research on the course book evaluation has been carried out to examine how well the materials being in use match the course requirements in terms of aims, content and methodology. Therefore, the author decided to choose one of those in- house materials named “Basic English III” (BEIII) for evaluation with the intention that it will not only help improve the material’s quality but also enhance the learning efficiency as well as stimulate students’ interest in language learning. 2. Aims of the thesis This study is intended to investigate: - How well the material has satisfied the requirements of the course in relation to aims, content and methodology? - What improvements should be made to the material to make it more effective in responding to the course requirements and students’ needs? Hopefully, the findings of the thesis will provide reliable basis for further suggestions, which helps the teachers - material designers at BGTTC improve this in- house material. 3. Significance of the thesis The findings of the thesis will be useful not only to the researcher, and the course book designers but also to the teaching staff and the second year non- English major students at BGTTC. Besides, the given findings will help form a foundation toward improving the quality of the in-house material “Basic English III” which is currently used for the students at BGTTC. Further more, it is hoped that those research results will make some contributions to the field of materials evaluation 4. Scope of the thesis In materials evaluation, there have been a great number of criteria that should be taken into consideration such as: the audience, the content, the methodology, the cultural bias, the layout, the authenticity, and so on. In this study, the researcher bases on Hutchinson and Waters’s (1987) criteria for evaluation with focus on the three following criteria: aims of the material, content of the material, and methodology. Due to the limited scope of a minor thesis, research subjects are primarily confined to English teachers who have been teaching the material for 2 years rather than to students who have learnt this material. However, to ensure the validity and reliability of the given information, students’ feedback, which is collected in an informal way through teachers’ observation and experience in working/talking with students, is also taken into account.
