CONFERENCE ON CRITICAL LANGUAGES IN LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES, UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON (APRIL 6-7, 1965).
REED, CARROLL E., ED.
ONE OF THE MAIN AIMS OF THE CONFERENCE ON CRITICAL LANGUAGES HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON APRIL 6-7, 1965, WAS TO FIND A CONSENSUS OF OPINION AMONG LINGUISTS, LANGUAGE TEACHERS, AND COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS ON THE PROBLEMS OF INTRODUCING CRITICAL OR NEGLECTED LANGUAGES INTO THE CURRICULUM OF SMALL, LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES. THE CONFERENCE WAS ALSO DESIGNED TO ALLOW SPECIALISTS IN SIX CRITICAL LANGUAGES--ARABIC, CHINESE, HINDI-URDU, JAPANESE, PORTUGUESE, AND RUSSIAN--TO PRESENT A SUMMARY OF AVAILABLE MATERIALS IN THESE LANGUAGES AND TO FORMULATE CERTAIN PRINCIPLES WITH RESPECT TO THEIR TEACHING. IN ADDITION TO THESE SUMMARIES AND COMMENTS, A REPORT OF THE KALAMAZOO COLLEGE PROGRAM IS INCLUDED. THIS PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE FOR SMALL GROUPS OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE STUDENTS TO STUDY INEXPENSIVELY AND AT SELF-PACED RATES, USING LARGELY SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AND FOREIGN-STUDENT "DRILL-MASTERS." A COPY OF THIS CONFERENCE REPORT IS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST FOR $0.50 PLUS POSTAGE FROM THE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICAN COLLEGES, 1818 R STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20009. (AMM)
