Lipton, Gladys C., Ed.
Twelve articles on current and projected trends in the teaching of foreign language in elementary schools (FLES) focus on four major areas of concern. A look at the present state of FLES instruction includes articles on programs in various parts of the world, the potential of FLES, and teacher preparation. Two articles on innovations and school facilities and programed instruction focus on the impact of technological advances. A section on bilingualism includes an article on ethnic groups and language maintenance. The last group of articles predicts directions which sequential programs are likely to take and the potential use of media for purposes of instruction. (RL)
