Strategies for Improving the Teaching and Learning of Foreign Languages.
This paper is designed to pinpoint the problems facing the teaching of foreign languages and suggests strategies that can be used in meeting these problems. The problems facing the profession have been assessed by observing foreign language teachers in the classroom and in conversations with them. Problems include the varying rate at which students acquire language skills, course content, preparation of students before they enter a given course, student attitudes toward language study, and the relationship between language study and their chosen careers. The strategies incorporate the findings of recent research and innovative ideas in foreign language curriculum development. (Author/CLK)
