Student Expectations and Reactions to Foreign Language Instruction.
Dernorsek, Cheryl
Student attitudes toward foreign language instruction are examined by means of an overview of 12 surveys conducted at high schools and colleges across the U.S. Findings indicate that students who are unsatisfied with their progress in learning a foreign language may have set unrealistic goals for themselves at the outset. Often they feel they are misled about what they will learn and the effort required. Students were also asked why they had enrolled in a foreign language course. Their reactions to teachers, programmed instruction, textbooks, and the language laboratory, are presented. (Author/RL)
