Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

This volume attempts to address an issue that deserves further attention on
the part of language acquisition researchers: that of intercultural
learners in instructed language contexts. Given the fact that most speech
communities where such learning takes place are at least bilingual, and the
idea that English is studied for the purposes of communication among people
from different cultures, 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.

This book is for researchers with an interest in the field of
second/foreign language acquisition and use, scholars examining learner
variables in instructional contexts, and scholars adopting a
sociolinguistic perspective in the study of oral discourse and languages in

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Written In: English (eng )
