Language Teaching: Crisis or Opportunity.
Deeken, Hans Werner
W.A.F.L.T. Forum, v5 n2 p15-21 Jan 1973
The nature and dimensions of the crises facing the language teaching profession are explored in this speech. Community and teacher attitudes must be redirected if language learning is to remain at the center of humanistic education. In achieving such change, teachers are exhorted to become "consumer-oriented" and utilize existing media to their advantage. Coordination of local, regional, state, and national associations having an interest in foreign language instruction is seen as being essential to the development of a united profession. (RL)
