Wilkins, Ernest J.; And Others
This bibliography on foreign language instruction and career preparation is divided into four parts. Part I presents general materials on the intersection of foreign language instruction and career preparation. Materials in Part II provide specific examples of programs or courses that are designed to address the issue of preparation of students of foreign languages for employment, especially in areas other than teaching. Part III presents materials describing occupations that call for skills in foreign languages. Part IV contains references to courses designed to teach foreign language skills related to specific occupations. While many of the documents may be of interest to broad audiences, Parts I and II may be of particular interest to teachers, counselors, administrators, or program planners; Parts III and IV are of special interest to students. Within the context of this document, the term "foreign language" refers to languages other than English that are or might be taught in U.S. or Canadian schools and universities. Foreign language competence refers to the ability to speak, understand, read, and write with a considerable degree of proficiency in a language other than English. (Author/CLK)
