CULTURE IN THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE CLASSROOM.
SEELYE, H. NED
THE NEED IN LANGUAGE STUDY FOR CULTURAL CONTENT, IN THE ANTHROPOLOGICAL SENSE (I.E., FOR CULTURAL REFERENTS OF LINGUISTIC UNITS), HAS GROWN WITH THE INCREASED EMPHASIS ON ORAL PROFICIENCY AND THE ABILITY TO FUNCTION IN THE TARGET LANGUAGE. INCORPORATING CULTURE INTO THE LANGUAGE PROGRAM CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED ON THE SECONDARY LEVEL BY HAVING THE SOCIAL STUDIES CLASS WORK CLOSELY WITH THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT, AND ON THE COLLEGE LEVEL BY INTERDISCIPLINARY OFFERINGS. HOPEFULLY, MORE COLLEGES WILL ENCOURAGE STUDY ABROAD, AND MORE EXCHANGE PROGRAMS WILL BE IMPLEMENTED TO PROVIDE MORE INDIVIDUALS WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF FUNCTIONING IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE "ILLINOIS JOURNAL OF EDUCATION," VOLUME 59, NUMBER 3, MARCH 1968, PAGES 22-26. (AF)
