Abstract

Being an English-speaking country means that second language learning does not have the same pressing urgency for Australia that it does for many other countries. Even so, the need for skills in other languages for export industries, tourism and intellectual and cultural development has been expressed by official committees of enquiry, industry leaders and educational authorities, such that Australians' traditional second language option, none at all, is being viewed with disquiet.
