Foreign Languages in the Age of Aquarius.
Lippman, Jane Neustein
Dialog, v5 n4 p2-8 Apr 1971
The role of language instruction in a changing society is scrutinized in this article. Enrollment trends in several subject areas are compared and reasons for the decline in English, mathematics, science, and languages are related to current student attitudes. Instructional objectives of language programs are criticized particularly for their narrowness in scope, and suggestions for the development of innovative course offerings are proposed. (RL)
