Taking the "Foreign" out of Foreign Language Teaching.
Eoyang, Eugene
ADFL Bulletin, v20 n2 p5-10 Jan 1989
In second language teaching, the reference to languages other then English as "foreign" is neither helpful nor useful since the label results from ethnocentric and political values. Defining languages along a disciplinary line such as linguistics or literature is much more conducive to effective foreign language teaching. (CB)
