Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education
This book presents a new view of what it means to teach language and
culture in a globalised world characterised by transnational flows of
people, commodities and ideas. It contains a critical analysis of the
national tradition of culture teaching as an aspect of foreign language
teaching and proposes a transnational framework for language and culture
pedagogy, aiming at the education of world citizens.
