Four major areas are presented: (1) D.C. Kiddy and W. Grauberg discuss current problems and practices in foreign language teaching; (2) N. Denison and D. Van Abbe comment on problems of combined degree courses and of intercalated periods of study or training abroad; (3) J.L.M. Trim and R. Hartley examine linguistics and curriculum planning; and (4) M.A.K. Halliday reviews existing research and future work. Material on recent and current research, a selective bibliography, and a listing of members of the conference are found in the appendixes. (RL)
