It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Foreign Language Teachers and Intercultural Communication
Edited By: Lies Sercu
Series Title: Languages for Intercultural Communication & Education

Foreign Language Teachers and Intercultural Communication: An International
Investigation reports on a study that focused on teachers' beliefs
regarding intercultural competence teaching in foreign language education.
Its conclusions are based on data collected in a quantitative comparative
study that comprises questionnaire answers received from teachers in seven
countries: Belgium, Bulgaria, Poland, Mexico, Greece, Spain and Sweden. It
not only creates new knowledge on the variability, and relative
consistency, of today's foreign language teachers' views regarding
intercultural competence teaching in a number of countries, but also gives
us a picture that is both more concrete and more comprehensive than
previously known.
