Summer Foreign Language Programs for School Students. ERIC Focus Reports on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, Number 10.
Haukebo, Gerhard K.
Results of a national survey of domestic summer foreign language programs for elementary and secondary students are the basis for information on summer schools, workshops, and camps. A description of a cultural immersion-type camp run by Concordia College receives significant attention. Other camps, including those for disadvantaged or potential language dropout students, are described, as well as several different kinds of summer schools, workshops and festivals, college courses that accept some secondary school students, enrichment programs, and televised instruction. Special benefits of summer programs and camps are pointed out. A brief bibliography is included. (AF)
