Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France). Committee for General and Technical Education.
This report outlines the symposium held on the teaching and learning of the mother tongue and of other modern languages. The aims were: (1) to examine the general connections between the teaching and learning of the mother tongue and of other modern languages in mono-, bi-, and multilingual communities in Europe; (2) to consider the bearing of modern theoretical and applied linguistics on these problems; (3) to suggest means of improving the coordination of the teaching and study of the mother tongue with the teaching and study of other modern languages in teacher training and in schools; and (4) to make recommendations for appropriate action on the part of the Council of Europe and of the member States of the Council for Cultural Cooperation. Included are summaries of the addresses, statements, and lectures; a summary of plenary discussions; group reports; and the conclusions and recommendations of the symposium. (Author/HW)
