The Quiet American Revisited.
Legters, Lyman H.
Liberal Education, v70 n1 p47-50 Spr 1984
What is wrong in the American parochialism about foreign languages is the assumption that language acquisition is a cosmetic gain, without any immediate or forseeable practical use. Languages will only be learned effectively when Americans learn that they can be used in getting tasks accomplished. (MSE)
