Problems of Establishing Low-Enrollment Asian Language Programs.
Nguyen Dang Liem
Since the learning of a foreign language is the key to the intellectual, artistic and literary riches of a nation, its value in general education is undeniable. The aims of the presently advocated Asian language programs lie in the concept of applying modern linguistics and cross-cultural studies to the planning of foreign language teaching programs. The two-year Asian language programs will be composed of a Pre-Speech Phase and an Active Phase, and will feature regular proficiency examinations. The lessons will be contextually based, experimentally relevant, and culturally informative. The personnel will consist of a professorial coordinator trained in aural-oral methodology and cross-cultural studies, and native master-drillers for the languages being taught. Close international cooperation is advocated for Asian language teaching centers to exchange ideas, specialists, and study teams. (Author/AMM)
