Foreign Language Teaching in Latin America.
Gomes de Matos, Francisco; Wigdorsky, Leopoldo
This report presents a survey of foreign language programs in Latin America. English as a second language is discussed as well as the teaching of other foreign languages. Remarks are made concerning language programs at various levels, teaching methods and materials, teacher preparation, status, and organizations, and acute problems. In the concluding comments, the report notes the special problems of the insufficient number of foreign language teachers and the inability to obtain appropriate materials. One of the biggest problems is a lack of communication among foreign language teachers in Latin America. The heaviest burden of responsibility for improvement rests with the foreign language teachers who have had good training. (VM)
