Summary

This report on foreign language enrollments, the eighth in a series published annually, shows the language enrollment distribution in public secondary schools (grades 7 to 12) which, in 1965, was 85.8 percent enrolled in Spanish, french, German, russian, and italian, 13.9 percent enrolled in Latin, and 0.3 percent in "other" languages. Three basic summary charts show (1) figures for total secondary school enrollment and foreign language enrollment, and regional enrollments, for 1960 and 1965, (2) percentage of public high schools offering modern foreign languages by state for 1954, 1959, 1964, and 1965, and (3) comparison of enrollments in advanced levels from 1961 to 1965 for the six leading foreign languages (Spanish, french, Latin, German, russian, and italian), showing an 88 percent increase in third year study and a 161 percent increase in fourth year study. Included also are 64 tables with enrollment breakdowns by region, state, year, and course level for both modern and classical languages. (ss)
