A Second Language - An Outward-looking Balance?

David Bancroft
Abstract: 

A concern for language learning, and the place of languages in the overall educational experience have not been the issues of great moment in New Zealand that they have been overseas, except amongst those actually involved in the teaching of foreign languages. In 1974 a small research committee was set up by the New Zealand Association of Language Teachers (NZALT) to discuss ways in which debate on the place of foreign languages in New Zealand could be, as it were, brought out into the open.
