Title: Language and Languages: Global and Local Tensions
Edited By: Christina Gitsaki
Description:

The emergence of globalisation is bringing massive changes to all aspects
of life, including language. In an effort to raise awareness on the effects
of globalisation on language learning and teaching, the Applied Linguistics
Association of Australia (ALAA) devoted its 31st Annual Congress to this
theme. This volume represents a collection of papers by academics in
Australia, South-East Asia, New Zealand, Europe and North America, which
synthesize language learning and teaching theories and current research to
present the views of applied linguists and language educators on a variety
of issues with regards to the tensions that globalisation and
internationalisation bring on language and languages. A total of twenty-two
articles discuss issues related to the status of the ELT profession in a
globalised world, issues of ESL teaching and language assessment, the ever
increasing use of ICTs for foreign language learning, and the effects of
globalisation on minority languages. This collection of articles attempts
to integrate theoretical issues, research findings, and practical
applications on different aspects of TESOL to provide academics,
researchers, students and language educators with a discussion of the
current state of affairs in the field of applied linguistics with regards
to globalisation.
