Kirkpatrick, Andy
Babel: Australia, v30 n1 p4-11,26-29 Apr-Jun 1995
States that the difficult Asian languages such as modern standard Chinese, Japanese and Korean, should not be taught in primary or lower secondary schools to non-background speakers of those languages, that is, those whose mother tongue is related to the language being learned. Maintains that time should be spent in primary and secondary schools studying Asian, Aboriginal and Anglo-European cultures. (15 references) (Author/CK)
