Who Should Study a Foreign Language? The Myth of Elitism.
Herron, Carol
Foreign Language Annals, v15 n6 p441-49 Dec 1982
The popular image of foreign language study as primarily for academically talented college-bound students is explored, and related historical documentation examined. It is suggested that contemporary versions of the theory on which this myth is based can support open-door rather than elitist policy toward foreign language study and reinforce foreign languages in the general curriculum.
