Learning and teaching English without a textbook:
An action research study


Ma. Graciela González Cristo


An effective and efficient teaching without a textbook of English as a foreign language can take advantage of a combination of methods, approaches, and syllabi in order to accomplish the curriculum goals. In a modern society, there is a general idea that textbooks are indispensable. When a community lacks the opportunity to reach textbooks for students, teacher and students feel like if the acquisition of the language could be impossible. This action research has the purpose of identifying the best combination of methods approaches and syllabi to teach Basic English to adults without a textbook, using as reference a very well known book: New Interchange Intro Book. We based the lesson in the summaries of the book and selected different oral and written activities based on the natural and audio-lingual method, the communicative approach, and taught it focusing in constructivism. The materials used in the classroom were board, markers, notebook, pen or pencil, realia, and didactic material designed by the teacher. The researcher planned it in order to create an environment of a school that lacks of modern textbooks, technology, and other kind of materials. To evaluate this study we used a criteria reference test specially designed for the reference book to compare with a pre-established rating. The results indicated the implementation of program was successful. Students had a good performance in the achievement tests. Some of them needed more study time in each unit, because their learning style required the use of a textbook in order to replace it. They needed extra practice time. The final average obtained by the sample was 91.9, which indicates they got a satisfactory rate of learning. Students’ comments in their journals demonstrated they found the program efficient, effective, and dynamic, with a relative degree of difficultness. In all the cases, students mentioned they improved in good scale their academic knowledge as well as writing, reading, listening and in a lower degree their speaking skill. Therefore, the approaches, methods, mixed syllabuses, and teaching activities employed during the course allowed real beginner students of English as a foreign language, who normally attended classes, to acquire the language without using a textbook.
