What Guidance Could Be Offered to the Student Alienated from the Foreign Language Experience?
Lubic, Michael K.
Discussion focuses on the widespread alienation of students from the foreign language experience while referring to methodological factors underlying this syndrome and to the uncertainty of the status that foreign language instruction has today in the classroom. A causal relationship is suggested to exist between students' alienation and the impact of the audiolingual method of instruction. Major portions of the paper cover: (1) problem area, (2) definition of the foreign language syndrome, (3) outline of the audiolingual method, (4) contrasting features of the traditional approach, and (5) suggested techniques for meeting course demands. It is hoped that the paper will help the campus counselor in his work with the student. (Author/RL)
