Language and Culture in Harmonious Performances.
Elliott, Jacqueline C.
Bulletin of the Illinois Foreign Language Teachers Association, v4 n1 p5-11 Apr 1972
Introductory remarks, critical of teaching methods in language programs, lead the author to explore the concept of "culture" and its place in the curriculum. Several definitions of culture are proposed and followed by contrastive examples in French and Spanish. The teaching of culture through language instruction is suggested to be a means of making second language learning relevant to the student. (RL)
