Klee, Carol A.
Hispania, v81 n2 p339-51 May 1998
The Standards for Foreign Language Learning present a definition of language teaching that includes the sociolinguistic and cultural aspects of language. The article analyzes the concept of communicative competence as used by sociolinguists and anthropologists and examines some of the components of communication (interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational) and their relationship to the Standards.
