The author discusses the nature of the talent for speaking, the distribution of linguistic talent, the relationship of linguistic ability to immaturity, the vast difference between active active and passive knowledge of foreign languages, the effect of bilingualism on mental development, the disorder in language instruction, and the battle of the various methods. He offers suggestions for placing foreign language instruction on a scientific basis.
