ABSTRACT: This eighth consecutive MLA annual study of foreign language enrollments in the public secondary schools reveals that in the fall of 1965 the total FL enrollment, grades 7–12, was over 4.5 million (27.4% of the total public secondary school population) compared with 2.8 million (23.4%) in fall 1960. This represents an increase of 62% compared with an increase in the overall secondary school population of 38%. The proportion of secondary schools, grades 7–12, offering a FL was 80.4%. At the level of grades 9–12, the ratio of enrollments to the total relevant school population was Spanish (12%), French (10.8%), Latin (5.1%), German (2.8%), and all other foreign languages (0.4%), for a total of 31.5%. In grades 9–12, modern FL have increased from 13.7% of the total school population in 1948 to 26.4% in 1965; in the same period Latin declined from 7.8% to 5.1%. Charts and tables show the distribution of 1965 enrollments by regions and by languages. Tables detail the comparative 1960–65 enrollments, by states, in Spanish, French, German, Russian, Italian, and Latin.
