Towards Higher Foreign-Language Enrollments at the College Level.
Yavener, Symond; And Others
As part of the Goals Clarification topic of the 1975 Northeast Conference, a workshop entitled "The Non-Major Foreign Language Student" was presented. This article contains the workshop's most salient ideas, presented at a time when foreign-language study is in considerable jeopardy at all levels. Offerings are being limited, and highly qualified teachers are losing their positions. There are fewer students in most colleges and public schools. The mid-seventies represents a "students' market." In light of this situation, the following article suggests specific programs to help remedy our plight. The reader will find a number of suggestions for revamping the major. Courses are proposed for attracting students from the academic community as well as from the community at large. There are proposals for special courses to maintain language skills, to appeal to students' immediate needs and interests, and to provide career preparation. (Author)
