Strengthening Foreign Language Professional Organizations.
Arkansas Foreign Language Newsletter, v5 n4 p1-7 May 1971
The leitmotif of this address, inspired by lines found in William B. Yeats'"The Second Coming", underscores the need for a greater display of solidarity of language teachers through increased participation in professional associations. The work of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) is discussed and noted to be vital to the survival of language instruction at all levels of education. Commentary is made on changing social conditions and their educational implications. (RL)
