Setting Realistic Objectives for the Commercial Foreign Language Course.
Holley, John F.
Failures and successes in teaching commercial foreign languages will speak for themselves. However, the profession must not foster exaggerated expectations of mastery in such a broad field, but must state honestly and realistically, with clear limits, what the commercial language course's goals are. In a college course enrolling somewhat experienced language students with little or no exposure to commercial foreign languages, the curriculum can be designed with objectives roughly analogous to those of a beginning undergraduate literature course: awareness of and respect for the field and familiarity with some of its important features.
