igan Quarterly Review, Vincent A.
Scanio of the Italian Language de-
partment tells how the various de-
partiments effectively coped with the
problem when the soldiers first ar-
rived in June, 1943.
The task which faced the teachers
was to give the soldiers a high level
of proficiency in oral and aural con-
trol of one of four languages, French,
Spanish, German, or Italian. They
were also to be trained to understand
practically everything said by a na-
tive in normal conversation and to
express themselves in their chosen
language with comparative ease.
Three Features Differ
The three main features of the
ASTP program, differing from the
regular language courses, were listed
by Scanio as: "The number of hours
was considerable, 17 per week; the
sections were very small, not exceed-
ing ten students; and the approach
throughout the program was basic-
"For the first six weeks the writ-
ten word was excluded from the
class and drill sections because it was
felt that the student would uncon-
sciously tend to give to the written
symbol a sound similar to the Eng-
lish written symbol," said Scanio in
his article, adding that for the be-
ginning period, all learning was aural
and oral, "based on materials pre-
pared by the senior instructor in
the form of short narratives and dia-
logues read to the class and repeated
by the group and by individuals."
Scanio believes that six main
points were acquired by the students.
First, they gained the immediate and
accurate understanding of the nor-
mal spoken language and, second,
the ability to use an environmental
and ideational vocabulary to express
themselves clearly and with reason-
able grammatical accuracy over a
wide range of subjects.
Immediate Understanding Gained
The rest naturally folow from there
with the ability to read and immedi-
ately understand difficult Italian
(This also applies to the other three
languages) with a minimum use of
a dictionary, and the acquirement of
a solid foundation for successful fu-
ture reading in one's own field of
interest, and the ability to write with
'a high degree of correctiveness in
their particular language. Training
in logical thinking through gramma-
tical analysis, and a fund of basic
notions on Italian civilization, com-
plete the program.
In other words, the ASTP students
were able to accomplish in 36 weeks
what the average college language
student seldom masters in two or
more years in the study of a langu-
