Foreign Language. Boston Regional Hearings.
President's Commission on Foreign Language and International Studies, Washington, DC.
A collection of position papers on aspects of foreign language and international studies was compiled for the President's Commission on Foreign Language and International Studies. The three major presentations focus on: the student and the foreign language curriculum, developing and maintaining teacher skills, and directions for research and assessment. Each of these papers is accompanied by a list of recommendations. The recommendations address global understanding, teacher training, adult learning opportunities, and regional resources for foreign language education. In the appendix, brief position papers on the interaction of the foreign language field with other academic fields are presented. These include three statements on foreign languages in business and industry, two statements on the contribution of international exchanges, two statements on institutional needs in language and area studies, and two statements on international education.
