Colloquy on "The Teaching of the Language of the Host Country to Adult Migrants." Report. (Hasselby, Sweden, May 15-17, 1979).
Council for Cultural Cooperation, Strasbourg (France).
Specific objectives of the May 1979 colloquy of the Council for Cultural Co-operation of the Council of Europe are described as: (1) to present and discuss three pilot projects in France, the Federal Republic of Germany, and Sweden for developing language learning objectives for adult migrants; (2) to produce plans for further modern language training activities in countries concerned with social and linguistic problems of migrants and their families; and (3) to provide for the deployment of tools for systems development which may lead to the selection of appropriate objectives, methodology, evaluation, and recognition. Texts of speeches and project presentations by participants are followed by a consolidated report, resulting from discussion of the pilot projects by four working groups who formed recommendations which were subsequently discussed, amended, and adopted by the participants. Recommendations are: to continue the pilot projects for teaching host country languages to migrants; to evaluate information on the progress and results of the projects and make it available to concerned countries; and to establish effective working links between the Project "Modern Languages" and other projects and bodies within the Council involved with matters of migration affecting the welfare and education of migrants and their families.
