An Investigation on Values of College Foreign Language Study.
Kalivoda, Theodore B.
This study seeks to determine how commonly-quoted values of foreign language study are actually perceived by students and professors who have taken undergraduate foreign language courses and to determine the implications this information might have for college curriculum planners. Some 177 students and professors participated in the study by completing questionnaires concerning attitudes. Among the findings, it was noted that students generally favored increased amounts of cultural instruction while many opposed the retention of the foreign language requirement. Professors' and students' attitudes conflict in many basic areas. Several tables and sample questionnaires are found in the appendixes. (RL)
