"The fourth semester proficiency
requirement in the University will
affect the high school language
teaching very little," according to
Prof. William Merhab, whose field
is Romance Languages and the
training of Modern Language
Teachers for the secondary schools.
"The goals of language teaching'
in high school andcollege are the
same. The difference lies in the
level of maturity and experience
of the student," Prof. Merhab con-
"Language learning in high
school has already undergone
changes. The tendency is towards

using the oral-aural method, that
is, understanding and speaking in
the foreign tongue."
Use Audio-Visual Aids
"In a few years, every well
equipped high school in the country
will very likely have its own lan-
guage laboratory and will make
greater use of audio-visual aids,"
Prof. Merhab continued.
"There has been a great deal of
increased interest and enthusiasm
in high school language teaching.

ers now feel it is important and
necessary that they spend some
time in the country whose language

Teach Fewer Languages
"The number of languages taught
in high school is not as great as in
colleges. To my knowledge, there
are no high school courses offered
in Chinese or Japanese in the con-
tinental United States.
"However, in many areas of thhe
nation, numerous persons speak the
language of their European ances-
tors, in addition to English. In cer-
tain parts of the country particular
languages are emphasized. For ex-
ample, stress is placed on Span-
ish in the southwestern part of the
United States, French in New Eng-
land," Prof. Merhab §aid.
"Every attempt is made to in-
troduce the student to objects
which illustrate the climate, atmos-
phere, and temperament of the
country. I've used Mexican statu-
ettes to demonstrate bullfights, al-
ligator skins to illustrate wild life
-dozens of foreign-made materi-
als," Prof. Merhab said.
