Creating Connections in Foreign Language Education: A Teacher's Perspective
Bridges, Judson
Journal of Language and Literacy Education, v4 n1 p91-97 Spr 2008
This article is a high school Spanish teacher's perspective on the current state of foreign language education in Georgia. Particularly, the author considers the need for more connections to be made in foreign language education, including explicit links between students' experiences and the relevance of language study, more integration of the fluidity of language and culture, and further dialogue between K-12 practitioners and university faculty.
