Language, the Frontier of Meaning.
Bulletin of the Modern Foreign Language Association of Virginia, v26 n3 p15-25 May 1970
The distinction between learning a first and a second language leads the author to discuss the nature of "high school French" and student expectations. Secondly, the notion of relevance and foreign language instruction is scrutinized in the light of conjectured needs of contemporary American culture. The third major area of discussion examines the concept of whether the humanities may be viewed as a unified field of study and the position of language study within such a categorization. (RL)
