RESEARCH ON USE AND VALUES OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES FOR INSTRUCTION AND STUDY IN THE SOCIAL SCIENCES. POLITICAL SCIENCE AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, NO. 3.
CORRIN, BROWNLEE S.
TRAINING AND EXAMINING TECHNIQUES WERE STUDIED TO BUILD AND UNIFY LANGUAGE AND PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCIES OF FOREIGN SERVICE TRAINEES (FOR BOTH GOVERNMENTAL AND NONGOVERNMENTAL FOREIGN OCCUPATIONS). STUDENT ASSISTANTS WERE ASSIGNED TO OPERATE RECEIVING AND RECORDING EQUIPMENT, AND TO MAINTAIN A CROSS-INDEX FILE SYSTEM TO FOREIGN LANGUAGE PERIODICALS. CONSULTANTS AND EXPERTS WERE CALLED UPON FOR SPECIAL SERVICES RANGING FROM PREPARATION OF EXAMINATION QUESTIONS AND EVALUATION OF ORAL AND WRITTEN LANGUAGE EXAMINATIONS, TO SURVEYS OF MATERIALS FOR ACQUIRING AND PROGRAMING FOREIGN LANGUAGE USE IN POLITICAL SCIENCE-INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLASSES. OTHER PERSONS CONSULTED INCLUDED LANGUAGE SPECIALISTS FROM THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE, THE UNITED NATIONS, AND MANY FOREIGN EMBASSIES. THE RESULTS INDICATED REASONABLE PROGRESS TOWARD AN IMPROVED POLITICAL SCIENCE-INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CURRICULUM. (RS)
