Does A Scientist Need Foreign Languages?
Crosby, Glenn A.
Foreign Language Annals, v20 n2 p181-83 Apr 1987
A scientist asserts that, while foreign language knowledge may not be needed for strictly scientific pursuits, such knowledge is critical in order to empathize with those who are rooted in other cultures and speak other tongues. Foreign language educators must take pride in their mission and carry their message and much-needed knowledge into the bastions of science and technology. (CB)
