ABSTRACT This study investigated the attitudes of secondary school administrators toward the supervision of foreign language teachers and gathered information about administrators' own foreign language backgrounds. The results indicate a limited knowledge of foreign languages among secondary teacher supervisors and widely varying opinions on the consequences of this limited understanding. The survey also identified the instructional strategies deemed most important and the areas of supervision considered most difficult by these administrators.
