FOREIGN LANGUAGES IN SOVIET SCHOOLS.
MILDENBERGER, KENNETH W.; AND OTHERS
THREE UNITED STATES SPECIALISTS IN TEACHING FOREIGN LANGUAGES SPENT 23 DAYS IN RUSSIA TO LEARN ABOUT WHAT SOVIET SCHOOLS ARE DOING IN THAT FIELD. THEIR REPORT HERE IS BASED ON INTERVIEWS WITH 120 SOVIET EDUCATORS AND VISITS TO 29 EDUCATIONAL AND RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS. REFORMS INITIATED BY THE SOVIET MINISTRY OF EDUCATION IN 1957 ARE BEING CARRIED OUT, AND CERTAIN REVISIONS IN MATERIALS AND METHODS ARE ALREADY IN OPERATION. INCLUDED HERE ARE THE SPECIALISTS' OBSERVATIONS ON THE COMPETENCY OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH, THE RESULTS OF TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMS, ENROLLMENTS IN ENGLISH COURSES, TEXTBOOKS AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS (MOST OF WHICH HAVE NOT BEEN ADAPTED SUCCESSFULLY TO THE NEW TEACHING METHODS), A LACK OF INSTRUCTION IN CULTURE, AND LANGUAGE LABORATORIES. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM "SCHOOL LIFE," OCTOBER 1960. (AS)
