A Handbook for Guiding Students in Modern Foreign Languages.
This revised and expanded version of "Modern Foreign Languages: A Counselor's Guide" discusses questions about foreign language study often asked by high school students. Spanning more than half the guide, the appendixes treat specific topics: (1) languages spoken by more than a million native speakers, (2) programs and publications (exchange, study, work, and travel abroad), (3) a 1960 U.S. population analysis by state with percentages of either foreign born or of foreign or mixed parentage, and (4) foreign language entrance and degree requirements for the bachelor of arts (B.A.) and the bachelor of science (B.S.) degrees in accredited colleges and universities. A section of selected references is included. For a companion document see FL 000 168. (RL)
