The Folklore of Language Teaching.
Magner, Thomas F.
Bulletin of the Pennsylvania State Modern Language Association, v43 n2 p59-63 Apr 1965
A university professor examines attitudes and theories relating to foreign language teaching commonly accepted by instructors and students in U.S. high schools and universities. The author attempts to distinguish the factual from the legendary, or the folklore as he refers to it, in such areas as the audiolingual approach, selection of textbooks, language laboratories, native speakers as teachers, the value of study abroad, the choice of a language to be studied, and the introduction of literature in a language program.
