Conclusions and Recommendations of the Council for Cultural Cooperation Conference.
Council for Cultural Cooperation, Strasbourg (France).
The concluding conference of the Council for Cultural Cooperation's Project on Foreign Languages is summarized according to the following framework: (1) the aims, the principle themes discussed at the conference, and the general results; (2) the considerations, proposals, and needs that were identified by the conference and the working groups; (3) conclusions and recommendations with regard to language learning in the schools, language learning by migrants and their families, language learning in higher, further and adult education, including multimedia programs, and initial and further teacher training; and (4) the implications of the Modern Languages Project Report and its own deliberations for the development of modern language teaching and learning in the member European states. The results of each report of the project are applied to an outline for the development of an overall policy, whose broad goals include widespread if not universal multilingualism, second language education from an early age, and a guarantee that all residents, including migrants, will be able to call upon the skills necessary for communication in daily situations.
