Las multiples dimensiones del campo de lenguas extranjeras (The Multiple Dimensions of the Foreign Language Field).
Zoreda, Margaret Lee
This paper discusses Wilga Rivers' seven language teaching objectives. Particular focus is on the following three language teaching objectives: (1) giving students the experience of expressing themselves linguistically and culturally in a context different from that in which they grew up; (2) fostering students' understanding of other peoples' viewpoints; and (3) endowing students with the abilities that enable them to communicate orally and in writing in both personal and professional contexts with speakers of other languages.
