Students' Misconceptions and Cultural Stereotypes in Foreign Language Classes.
Mantle-Bromley, Corinne
Middle School Journal, v26 n1 p42-47 Sep 1994
The language-related attitudes and beliefs that young students bring into the classroom carry serious implications for their successful second-language acquisition and intercultural communication. This article illustrates the predominance of student misconceptions and cultural stereotypes in one setting. Students' expectations and their beliefs about the studied cultures and the desirability of speaking another language must be addressed. (Contains 20 references.) (MLH)
