INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHING.
WILLIGEN, D. VAN
IN ORDER TO FIND A SYNTHESIS FOR PRACTICAL INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN THE TEACHING OF FOREIGN CIVILIZATION IN LANGUAGE PROGRAMS, SPECIFIC MEASURES MUST BE TAKEN TO COORDINATE ALL RELATED EFFORTS IN MAKING USE OF EXISTING RESOURCES AND TO DEFINE THE RELEVANT FUTURE NEEDS AND RESOURCES OF THE PROFESSION. EASY ACCESSIBILITY TO INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM A SMOOTH, EFFICIENT SYSTEM OF RESEARCH, STUDY, DOCUMENTATION, AND ACTION WOULD ASSIST THE TEACHER IMMEASURABLY IN UPDATING AND IMPROVING HIS INSTRUCTION. TO INITIATE AND DISSEMINATE TO TEACHERS SUCH NEEDED INFORMATION AS A GENERAL SUMMARY PAMPHLET OF THE FINDINGS OF MODERN SOCIAL SCIENCES RELEVANT TO LANGUAGE TEACHING, A LIST OF SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTIONS AND RESEARCH CENTERS ACTIVE IN THE FIELD, AND THE RESULTS OF A SURVEY MADE OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CURRENT METHODS WILL REQUIRE THE CREATION AND THE SUPPORT OF EFFICIENTLY ORGANIZED AND OPERATING NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS. SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES COULD BE MADE IN COORDINATING FUTURE LANGUAGE ACTIVITY BY THE CLOSE COOPERATION, AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL, OF THE GOVERNMENT AND A STRONG PROFESSIONAL GROUP AND, AT THE INTERNATIONAL LEVEL, OF THE COUNCIL FOR CULTURAL COOPERATION AND THE INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION.
