Trends in Foreign Language in the 70's.
Marshall, Randall G.
Changing social attitudes of students in American schools are seen to have a direct bearing on currently declining enrollment figures in foreign language programs. The author discusses ways in which motivation can be improved. Comments are directed to the use of class time, dialogues, pattern drills, memorization, prereading experience, pronunciation training, language laboratories, filmstrips, modular scheduling, workbooks, homogeneous grouping, and individualizing instruction.
