Where Are We Heading in Foreign Language Teaching?
Jones, William R.
The Independent School Bulletin, v25 n1 p28-33, Oct 1965
Following a review of language research and program results during the previous decade, a projection of ultimate and immediate goals in foreign language teaching during 1965-75 is made. The suggestions are incorporated under the headings of the audiolingual approach, programed instruction, linguists' role, mechanical aids, testing, program articulation, general standards establishment, and teacher training. A wider selection of reading materials to complement the audiolingual texts and an adaptation of pattern drills to age level needs are typical of the changes sought. (DS)
