A Challenging Direction for Foreign Languages.
Guenette, Paul G.
This paper suggests a new direction and scope for instruction in existing language programs. The author proposes that language courses become "acculturation" courses which would have as their central educational objective the acculturation of the student into the target culture through language, civilization, and culture study. Learning style is to be marked by self-pacing in skills and interest areas of immediate concern to the learner to assure a continuance of progress in solving problems pertinent to each individual learner. Student evaluation, psychological learning factors, educational objectives, language skills, program requirements, and individualized learning are discussed. (RL)
