This book is a critical examination of the failure of the current foreign-language teaching model in the United States, based primarily on the author's first-hand experience as a language learner and teacher, and secondarily on interdisciplinary research. The target audience includes virtually anyone interested in the teaching or learning of foreign languages. The need for this book has never been greater. Virtually every day we see on TV, in magazines, on the Internet, or even in academia, ads for quick and easy foreign language proficiency. This false advertising serves only to mask our linguistic incompetence and interferes with much needed progress in the struggle for increasing foreign language acquisition.
