Fairfield Public Schools, CT.
Presented in this report are the procedures, results, and recommendations of a study conducted in Fairfield, Connecticut in which high school students with FLES backgrounds were compared with non-FLES peers in terms of language skills and interest in foreign language study. A summary of findings on student interest in language study is presented first and is followed by descriptions of the skills measurement procedures, test administration and scoring, sample selection, statistical procedures, and test results. Summarized conclusions indicate that FLES background stimulated considerable interest in further language study and that FLES-trained groups scored higher than their peers in most of the language skills tested. The report concludes with a short discussion of the study's implications and some brief recommendations for follow-up studies and for an improved FLES program. (AR)
