This book considers the importance of language education in a rapidly changing world. The authors look at language education from different perspectives: the teaching and learning of foreign or second languages; the role of literacy, oracy and language across the curriculum; the part played by different stakeholders in educational policy; and the current state of language teacher education and the ways in which language is addressed in the education of teachers of all subjects. Drawing on their extensive experience of language education, and on case studies and data from around the world, the authors consider how a different approach to language in education might help students to develop the language awareness and linguistic and communicative competences they need in order to participate fully and confidently in our increasingly diverse societies.

Recenzijos

This timely book provides a comprehensive guide to exploring the critical role that language education plays in today's world as well as its potential to transversally enhance curricula across educational sectors. The chapters chart key milestones in the development of language education from the perspective of a wide range of stakeholders with illustrative examples spanning several continents. A must-read for teachers, teacher educators, researchers, policymakers and anyone involved in language studies advocacy. * Adriana Diaz, The University of Queensland, Australia * There are many books about language, some of which are informative about the origins, purposes, development and significance of language. Bolitho and Rossner have written such a book and should be congratulated on its scholarship and wisdom and, in particular, on its narrative verve and its unusual power to stimulate thought and action. * Brian Tomlinson, Anaheim University, USA * Bolitho and Rossner should be congratulated on this well-structured and clearly presented book which showcases the key concepts in language teacher education and will benefit researchers, teachers and students in language education. * Lawrence Jun Zhang, University of Auckland, New Zealand *
