The trend toward the development of functional communication skills and a longer sequence of language study has been hastened by an awakened public interest in modern foreign languages and by the emphasis given to language development in the National Defense Education Act. Both the immediate and the long-range objectives of foreign language study have changed markedly in the last few years, and language instruction at all levels of the school system is undergoing a thorough revision. It is more difficult now than in the past to advise students of school age about foreign language programs fitted to their needs and abilities. Guidance workers, teachers, principals, and parents who are responsible for helping students plan their program of study need basic information about foreign languages. The present publication updates and considerably expands information contained in a previous bulletin, Modern Foreign Languages: A Counselor's Guide, which had previously provided this information. (Contains 41 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
