Designing an Afrikaans (third language) communicative syllabus

N. Rousseau, M.S. Odendaal

Abstract


When the new communicative syllabuses for Afrikaans as a third language were
introduced in the primary schools in Transkei the problem arose: the teachers who
had to implement the syllabuses were not trained in the communicative approach. A
communicative syllabus had to be designed for teacher training colleges to train
teachers in the methodology as well as improve their proficiency in Afrikaans.
This paper describes the needs analysis that was conducted as the basis for the
syllabus and gives an outline of the syllabus that was designed.
Toe die nuwe kommunikatiewe sillabusse ~n Afrikaans as 'n derde taal in die primere
skole in Transkei ingevoer is, het dit tot die volgende ernstige probleme gelei: Die
onderwys~rs wat die nuwe sillabusse moes gebruik was nie opgelei in die
kommunikatiewe benadering nie. 'n Kommunikatiewe sillabus moes dus ontwerp
word in die onderwyserskolleges om die onderwysers in die metodologie op te lei
sowel as om hulle taalvaardigheid in Afrikaans te verbeter.
Hierdie artikel beskryf die behoefte-analise wat as 'n basis in die sillabus gedien het
en beskryf in bree trekke die sillabus wat ontwerp is.
