The report details results in the fifth year of implementation (1997-97) of a set of French, German, and Italian instructional modules designed for non-foreign-language-majors at the University of Dublin (Ireland). Focus is on the chief developments during that year (further refinement of the curriculum, production of a guide to independent language learning, and introduction of an identity cards to monitor access to language learning facilities and resources), rates of course enrollment and completion, and the generally high level of achievement in the courses. Research and development activities are outlined, changes in language program personnel are noted, and the piloting of a European Language Portfolio that records the student's language qualifications, background, and work is explained. Prospects for the language program's further development in the future are also discussed. (MSE)
