Beyond the Competitive Edge: The Peaceful Uses of Language Study.
Tonkin, Humphrey
Foreign Language Annals, v21 n3 p271-77 May 1988
Language learning should be taught to cultivate appreciation of the richness and diversity of the world, not just to gain a competitive edge. The language community must teach languages as a path to many kinds of knowledge, begin foreign-language instruction in the elementary schools, and maintain interest in foreign languages and provide opportunities for their use.
