dc.description.abstract Determines the quantitative extent of the influence of role-models (parents, teachers and friends) on the subject choices of high school pupils. Special attention is given to the position of foreign language studies, especially the study of Latin. From the available literature, the task of the high school is investigated, and societal and career demands influence on school subjects assessed. Reference is made to the heterogeneity of the high school population and the extent of differentiated education. It is shown that a wide variety of systems of subject choice exists in different countries. As regards foreign language studies, and Latin in particular, it appears that this subject is losing pupils to more technical subjects. The methods of teaching foreign languages are discussed, as well as their practical, cultural and formative value. An experiment was conducted among nearly 7000 pupils at a representative sample of Transvaal high schools. Findings indicate that the influence of parents on subject choice is relatively large, while that of the school is smaller. However, the school seems to play a greater role in this regard in English medium, small and rural schools. It is found that the subject teacher plays perhaps the most important role, especially in the choice of foreign languages. en
