Abstract:

Advanced language learning has only recently begun to capture the interest
and attention of applied linguists and professionals in language education
in the United States. In this breakthrough volume, experts in the field lay
the groundwork for approaching the increasingly important role of advanced
language learning in the larger context of multilingual societies,
globalization, and security.

This volume presents both general and theoretical insights and
language-specific considerations in college classrooms spanning a range of
languages, from the commonly taught languages of English, French, and
German to the less commonly taught Farsi, Korean, Norwegian, and Russian.
