Extracurricular Foreign Language Activities. ERIC Focus Reports on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, Number 29.
Because of recent educational trends, reliance on the language club as an instructional supplement is no longer sufficient. This paper discusses the general decline of language clubs and the changing philosophy behind extracurricular activities, such as department-wide festivals, weekend programs, and trips abroad. These activities are suggested as replacements for outdated language clubs and are intended to provide a more relevant and interesting cultural experience for today's student. (CM)
