Why Require the Study of Foreign Languages and Literatures?
McSpadden, George E.; And Others
South Carolina Foreign Language Teacher, v1 n1 p8-14 Spring 1971
Noting that seven-eights of the world's population does not speak English, the author cites reasons for requiring that students study languages and literature. He observes that if American students are to serve in the world effectively, they must be prepared for such service. Particularly emphasized in the author's reasoning is the notion that monolinguality and monocultural isolation leads to personal underdevelopment. (RL)
