Buck, Kathryn
Unterrichtspraxis, v17 n2 p307-11 Fall 1984
Cautions against adapting the Interagency Language Roundtable and the ACTFL/ETS guidelines for specific purposes. Defines "hothouse special" as a second language learner who can impressively speak on one or two higher topics but fails to transfer this level of vocabulary and grammar to other topics. Proposes new definitions of proficiency, performance, and achievement. (SED)
