Pursuing a Foreign Language Education: A Current Student's Perspective
Marcott, Pamela F.
Journal of Language and Literacy Education, v4 n1 p83-90 Spr 2008
As a sixth year student of Spanish looking back on her foreign language education, the author believes she has a greater understanding of what attracted her to and maintained her interest in the language. Yet she also recognizes areas in her education that could have benefited from change, including flexibility in creating her own program of study and more integration of language and culture in her courses. Such changes, she believes, would encourage more students to continue pursuing their foreign language education even after meeting their minimum requirements.
