THE IDEAL PREPARATION OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS.
BROOKS, NELSON
LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION, AS DISTINGUISHED FROM LANGUAGE LEARNING, IS CONSIDERED IN THIS ARTICLE TO BE A NEW DISCIPLINE WHOSE OBJECTIVES ARE COMPETENCE IN THE TARGET LANGUAGE, CULTURAL AWARENESS, AND LITERARY ACQUAINTANCE. THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THIS DISCIPLINE IN TERMS OF A PROFESSIONAL GRADUATE PROGRAM FOR LANGUAGE INSTRUCTORS IS DISCUSSED. THE ARTICLE DEALS BRIEFLY WITH THE CRITERIA FOR THE SELECTION OF CANDIDATES, PREREQUISITES FOR ENTRANCE TO THE PROGRAM, A QUALIFYING EXAMINATION, A PERIOD OF INTERNSHIP, AND A CODE OF ETHICAL STANDARDS FOR LANGUAGE TEACHERS. PARTICULAR ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO THE CURRICULUM DESIGN OF THE PROGRAM, WHICH SHOULD INCLUDE COURSES IN PHILOSOPHY, PHILOLOGY, LITERATURE, PSYCHOLOGY, LINGUISTICS, AND CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGY, AS WELL AS TRAINING IN DIDACTICS AND IN THE USE OF TECHNOLOGICAL AIDS. THIS SPEECH WAS DELIVERED AT THE CONFERENCE ON THE PREPARATION OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS (HARVARD UNIVERSITY, MAY 7, 1965) AND IS REPRINTED IN "THE MODERN LANGUAGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 50, NUMBER 2, FEBRUARY 1966, PAGES 71-78.
