The Adult Student and Languages.
An attempt to determine educational needs in adult education in Commonwealth countries, particularly in Britain and Australia, this document focuses on the changing sociological backgrounds of students in existing programs. Identification of characteristics of a cross-section of the students suggests a direct relationship between parental attitudes toward education and adult interest in non-vocational, continuing education. Concluding remarks concentrate on determining the need to modify teaching methods and curriculums in light of the changing student body. (RL)
