Foreign Language Learning: Fact or Fiction.
Belasco, Simon
Von Humboldt wrote in 1836 that " cannot really teach language but can only present the conditions under which it will develop spontaneously in the mind in its own way..." The author critically illustrates his reasons for supporting this theory of language learning. Concluding remarks summarize advantages and disadvantages of using contrived educational materials in the classroom. (RL)
