CHINESE LANGUAGE AND AREA STUDIES IN A UNIVERSITY.
HUCKER, CHARLES O.
THE AUTHOR STATES THAT ONE OF THE MOST PRESSING PROBLEMS IN THE TEACHING OF CHINESE ON THE GRADUATE LEVEL IS DEFINING THE SCOPE OF THE AREA STUDIES AND DEVELOPING A CORE LANGUAGE PROGRAM THAT WILL BOTH ACCOMODATE THE STUDENT'S ACADEMIC PURPOSE AND USE HIS LANGUAGE PREPARATION. GRADUATE CENTERS SHOULD ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO STUDY CHINESE FOR COMPREHENSION IN POLITICAL SCIENCE, CHINESE LITERATURE, OR LINGUISTICS, IN ADDITION TO OBTAINING A NATIVE COMMAND OF THE LANGUAGE. EARLY LANGUAGE TRAINING THAT IS EXTREMELY INTENSIVE PRESENTS A CURRICULUM PROBLEM FOR THE GRADUATE SCHOOLS TRYING TO ESTABLISH AN INTEGRATED "AREA STUDIES" PROGRAM. THE AUTHOR FEELS THAT KNOWLEDGE OF A FOREIGN LANGUAGE MUST ULTIMATELY BE A TOOL FOR SOME LARGER ACADEMIC PURPOSE. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE"JOURNAL OF THE CHINESE LANGUAGE TEACHERS ASSOCIATION." VOLUME 2, NUMBER 1, FEBRUARY 1967. (FB)
