Active Methods and Modern Aids in the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
Filipovic, Rudolf, Ed.
Conclusions and recommendations of the 10th Congress of the Federation Internationale des Professeurs de Langues Vivantes based on papers, speeches, and discussions of language research in many different countries are presented. A three-part section on audio-visual aids comments upon: (1) the value and limitations of the language laboratory, (2) the relative merit of radio and television in foreign language teaching, and (3) the use of audio-visual methods in the areas of writing, exercises, and grammar. A section on foreign language teaching in a bilingual community questions: (1) the effect of universally required second language study on child personality, (2) the effect of bilingual status on the teaching of a third language, and (3) the degree of bilingualism for which the intensive language program should aim. Many research recommendations are offered in the section on contrastive linguistics and its pedagogical implications. Other sections deal with programed foreign language teaching, literature and civilization in foreign language teaching, and technical language in secondary and adult education. A program schedule is included. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document]. (RL)
