OPENING PANDORA'S BOX; OR TEACHING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE TO A STUDENT WITH ASPERGER SYNDROME

Joanna Kozik, Wioletta Rusin

Abstract


The aim of the paper is to discuss the issues related to FL (English) education in respect to the children with the clinically discovered Asperger Syndrome. In particular, we are planning to analyze the selected forms of motivation that might be applied to help such children learn a foreign language (mostly English) as well as to look into a number of possible ideas for motivating children to make them being visibly involved in various foreign language (further: FL) learning processes. One of the basic questions, which seem to aptly illustrate the considerations discussed here, refers mainly to the key role that English plays in the life of a man, both young and adult, as well as how much such linguistic knowledge can facilitate the development of an individual, Asperger-suffering children included.
