The Schools Take Over Foreign Languages.
Journal of Secondary Education, v39 n6 p243-250 Oct 1964
The status of foreign language education is discussed in the context of increased enrollments and the current fervor to raise academic standards generally. Problems related to the increased enrollments in high school language courses (audiolingually oriented), and the rather inflexible attitudes of college language departments (literature oriented) are identified. Attention is given to such components as high school and FLES courses, college courses, College Boards, Advanced Placement, and the preparation of language teachers. Some suggestions, mostly concerned with teacher hiring practices, are made. (AF)
