THE NEW INTERRELATION BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND LANGUAGE LEARNING.
FISHER, JOHN H.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE INSTITUTE DIRECTORS AND ENGLISH DEPARTMENT CHAIRMEN (31) MET DURING A 3-DAY CONFERENCE TO DISCUSS LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION. THREE BASIC AREAS WERE APPROACHED--(1) THE PRESENT STATUS OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHING, (2) THE PROMOTION OF THE GENERAL PURPOSES OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION BY ENGLISH TEACHERS, AND (3) THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE CURRICULUM AS SUPPORT FOR NEW METHODS OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE EDUCATION. EACH OF THE AREAS WAS FURTHER DIVIDED INTO FIVE SHARPLY FOCUSED QUESTIONS. WORK PAPERS WERE PRESENTED AND PROVIDED THE BASIS FOR DISCUSSION. SIX PROJECTS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH WERE RECOMMENDED. THE FOLLOWING WERE SUGGESTED AS AREAS OF CONCENTRATION FOR FUTURE STUDIES--ENGLISH COMPOSITION AND GREAT BOOKS, EXPERIMENTATION OF A PRACTICAL NATURE, AND APPLICABILITY OF AUDIOLINGUAL METHODS. REPORTS IN THIS SERIES ARE ED 003 940 THROUGH ED 003 960. (RS)
