Ethnic Values and Language Learning.
Brault, Gerard J.
Bulletin of the PSMLA, v51 n1 p12-15 F 1972
Sociocultural implications of ethnicity are explored in this paper. Three main questions are discussed: (1) What is ethnic?, (2) Who wants to be ethnic?, and (3) Why be ethnic? The author notes that in 1960 the ethnic diversity of the U.S. population was such that some 185 foreign language newspapers, 1,660 radio programs broadcast in the foreign language, and 194 ethnic schools existed.
