Intensive Foreign Language Courses. Language in Education: Theory and Practice, No. 18.
Benseler, David P.; Schulz, Renate A.
Intensive foreign language courses are discussed in terms of historical background, categorization of types, definition of components of intensive instruction as practiced at present in academic settings, and advantages and special problems of intensive instruction. Practical considerations for the implementation of intensive options cover the following areas: (1) publicizing and recruiting for intensive courses, (2) screening and selection of students, (3) scheduling, (4) staffing and coordination of instruction, (5) granting of academic credit, and (6) testing and evaluation. Approximately half of this document is devoted to a bibliography. (JB)
