Theories abound, among them that French is less practical than other language options, and that French language and culture bear distinctly feminine attributes which many young males are hesitant to embrace. This book looks closely at the single-sex and coeducational secondary environments to produce various theories as to why male enrollment in French class suffers so much less when girls are not around. A good resource for foreign language teachers, school administrators, and anyone interested in how boys and girls learn and perceive of the role of the high school experience.
