Anti-Intellectualism in Modern Language Learning.
Suther, Judith D.
Tennessee Foreign Language Bulletin, v16 n2 p28-30 Winter 1969
In an attack on the current oral-aural approach to teaching foreign languages in the secondary school, the author laments the loss of intellectual involvement on the part of the student in the learning process. Resultant limitations in student preparation for advanced study in literature and linguistics are observed. A set of objectives is suggested which will suit the needs of those students who pursue language study beyond the elementary courses and will also provide terminal use for the non-specialist. (RL)
