Languages for the World of Work. Final Report.
Olympus Research Corp., Salt Lake City, UT.
A study was conducted preliminary to establishing a linkage between the needs of business and government for personnel qualified in foreign languages on the one hand, and the need for career opportunities for college students studying foreign languages on the other. This volume reports on the accomplishments of each phase of the study. The initial phase consisted of a survey of the literature, to be embodied in an annotated bibliography. The government and business sectors were then queried extensively on their needs for foreign-language-trained personnel. Finally, the results of this needs assessment coalesced into models for curriculum and material development. The project is seen as paving the way for a working relationship among the business, government, and academic sectors, whose mutual lack of communication has in the past resulted in wasted talent and training on the one hand, and imperfectly met personnel needs on the other.
