Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: ESP in European Higher Education
Subtitle: Integrating language and content
Edited By: Inmaculada Fortanet-Gómez
Christine A. Räisänen
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=AALS%204
Series Title: AILA Applied Linguistics Series 4
Description:

The Bologna Reform has been implemented in a large part of the European
Union and it is time to take a short pause to reflect over some of the
lessons learned up to now. The aim of this book is to share experiences and
reflections on English for Specific Purposes pedagogy in Western European
higher education. Taking as a starting point the development of the EU
policies during the past couple of decades and their national
implementations, the chapters in this book provide various perspectives,
both theoretical and practical, on the ways in which the reform has been
implemented and its effects on the teaching of ESP. Experiences of
developing programmes and courses incorporating Content and Language
Integrated Learning and Autonomous and Lifelong Learning are described, as
well as Problem-Based Learning and Process-Genre Pedagogies. The book also
includes chapters on the crucial, but often neglected issue of teacher
support in meeting the challenges of teaching content through the medium of
English.
