This volume addresses an issue that deserves further attention: that of intercultural learners in instructed language contexts. The book focuses on English learners as intercultural speakers. In so doing, the volume brings together three main research areas: those of the study of English as a lingua franca, the development of communicative competence and the use and acquisition of a language beyond a second one in instructed contexts.
