Schulz, Renate A., Ed.
This book consists of ten papers presented at the 1976 Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Three major trends in foreign language instruction were identified as themes for the conference: (1) the growing emphasis on developing communication skills in the language learning experience; (2) the concern for the individual student's attitudes, values, and needs in developing interpersonal relationships and communication in the classroom; and (3) the interest in intercultural and ethnic communication. The following papers are included in this volume: (1) "Between People - A Mystery of Language," by Charles T. Brown; (2) "A Relevant Curriculum: Linguistic Competence + Communicative Competence = Proficiency," by Sidney N. J. Zelson; (3) "Communicative Competence: Even for the Non-Major," by Patricia B. Westphal; (4) "Integrating Culture and Communication in the College Foreign Language Class," by Constance Knop, Carol Herron, and Valorie Wyman; (5) "Testing Communicative Competence," by Walter H.
