Behrens, Sophia A., Comp.
This directory is intended to provide foreign language educators as well as persons interested in foreign languages and cultures with a convenient reference guide containing information on the availability of resources and services that can help enrich classroom instruction and independent study. Two major sources of information and services for the teaching of English as a second language have also been included: TESOL and the English language division of the British Council Central Information Service. This second edition of the directory has three new features: (1) a greatly expanded language index, now covering publishers and distributors as well as organizations; (2) more than 40 new organizations, many of them NDEA centers; and (3) several organizations involved in international student exchanges or study programs. The directory is divided into three sections: (1) foreign language service organizations; (2) publishers and distributors of foreign language materials; (3) the language index. Suggestions on how to use the directory are provided at the end of the introduction. (MES)
