A European Units/Credits System for Modern Language Learning by Adults. Report of the Meeting of Experts (January 23 & 24, 1973).
Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France). Committee for Out-of-School Education and Cultural Development.
This report outlines a meeting of experts held in connection with a project to implement a European units/credits system for modern language learning by adults. The group's aims were: (1) to discuss the second phase of research--operational specification of adult language learning objectives--and in particular to give further guidance and briefing for the full-time research to be carried out in 1973; (2) to give preliminary consideration to later stages of the research and development program; and (3) to examine provisional results in the gathering of information relevant to the development of the units/credits system (replies to the questionnaire sent to national rapporteurs of the St. Wolfgang Symposium and replies to the questionnaire on needs and motivations of adults learning a foreign language tested in the framework of the Eurocentres). The conclusions reached as a result of this meeting are detailed in the report. (Author)
