Perspectives of Preservice Foreign Language Teachers.
Spezzini, Susan; Oxford, Rebecca L.
System, v26 n1 p65-76 Mar 1998
A study of 16 language-teacher trainees found distinct differences between perceived and actual language proficiency. During the foreign-language-teaching methodology course, candidates developed greater realism about their own abilities and need for further language development. The investigation illustrates how motivations change over time for learning a foreign language, and provides specific ideas for improving preparation of language teacher programs. (Author/MSE)
