Modern Languages and European Studies. CILT Reports and Papers 9.
Centre for Information on Language Teaching, London (England).
This publication is the result of a conference on foreign language teaching and European studies convened by the Centre for Information on Language Teaching and Research in February 1973. In the first chapter, which serves as an introduction to the volume, G. E. Perren summarizes current views about the relationship between foreign languages and European studies. In chapter 2 P. Freeman points out that European studies should more properly be called language area studies. The third chapter is divided into two parts. E. J. Neather supports the idea that the area studies curriculum is incomplete without a language element, and P. Whittington describes European studies courses at several British schools. Nonspecialist European studies programs in the sixth form are discussed by P. Richardson in chapter 4. M. Brown writes about the Mill Hill French geography/history scheme in the fifth chapter, and German studies for the less able are recommended by A. F. Boxford in chapter 6. The seventh chapter treats the rationale behind area studies in the Schools Council Modern Language Project. T. Sirevag compares the educational role of foreign languages in Britain and Norway, and C. V. James presents six models of interrelationships between teaching languages and associated studies. Two papers prepared for but not discussed at the conference are printed as appendixes. (PMP)
