A MESSAGE FROM AVANT’S CEO, DAVID BONG
Greetings from rainy Eugene.In this newsletter we are releasing our 2017 STAMP National Averages Report. This year we are adding an article by Kyle Ennis and Carl Falsgraf that provides an analysis of the data. They address two long standing and burning questions in the field:
- Is the general assumption that two years of high school language study is equal to one year of study in college or university correct?
- Is it harder for English Speakers to learn Asian languages than European languages?
