Abstract

Humanities disciplines attract only modest enrollments and are threatened by reallocation of funding. Lesscommonly taught languages are particularly vulnerable. They can be sustained by costeffective alternatives to the orthodox classroom instructional format. The article describes selfaccessed learning and various multimedia distance-learning options, and assesses their effectiveness.
