Subject: Internet-mediated Foreign Language Education

We seek submissions of original research on Internet-mediated
intercultural foreign language education for the 2005 volume of the
American Association of University Supervisors and Coordinators
(AAUSC) published by Heinle & Heinle.

An example of internet-mediated intercultural foreign language
education would be email, chat, or videoconfereing projects between
classes of language learners in France and the United States.
(Partnerships can involve any languages, any countries.)

The full call for papers can be accessed here:

We are particularly interested in receiving submissions involving
learners of less commonly taught languages such as Arabic, Russian,
Chinese, Korean, Greek, Vietnamese, etc. We would be very interested
in submissions involving partnerships in which English is not one of
the target languages, e.g. a Turkish-German exchange, an Arabic-Hebrew
