Modern Foreign Languages for the Racially Disadvantaged.
Hubbard, Louise J.
The Modern Language Journal, v52 n3 p139-40 Mar 1968
The view of some educational theorists that disadvantaged children with nonstandard English patterns have little to gain from the study of a second language is challenged. Rather, the study of a foreign language, with emphasis on communication and an audiolingual approach, is considered potentially beneficial for such students since the language class ideally is given in the second language. Ways in which modern teaching methods in language classes reinforce successful methods of teaching the disadvantaged are identified. (AF)
