Title: Intercultural Language Use and Language Learning
Edited By: MariaPilarSafont Jordà
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-5635-2
Description:

*Includes well known names in applied linguistics
*Contains original empirical studies dealing with ELF and bilingual learners
*Up-to-date discussion of intercultural theory and research
*Links intercultural research to language learning and teaching

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.
