Abstract:

This book addresses the various challenges facing university foreign
language teaching in non-anglophone countries in the era of educational
globalization. Growing student mobility, net-based cross-border university
education, and universities opening subsidiaries in other countries force
university teachers to offer their teaching in English rather than in their
mother tongue, and universities to equip their staff members with the
necessary foreign language competencies. As a reflection of societal and
institutional globalization processes, dedicated language teachers strive
to adjust teaching methods to new student identities, the availability of
advanced learning technologies, and social media enabling multiple forms of
cross-border contact. Thus, understanding the situation of contemporary
university language teaching requires a consideration of macro-level social
changes, institutional policies, as well as developments in classroom practice.

The point of departure is the case of Denmark. The problems addressed and
the remedies offered, however, apply to all non-anglophone universities
with the ambition to stay competitive in the global market of university
education.

The book includes contributions from foreign and second language teaching
specialists representing a broad spectrum of Danish universities and years
of sustained scholarly effort to improve the standard of university
language teaching and the political recognition of the importance of
advanced foreign language skills.
