Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 92
Description:

The adoption of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) in Higher
Education teaching has been widespread. This learning strategy has
developed the need to learn foreign languages and to communicate with
people with different cultural backgrounds. Culture learning should be part
of language and content teaching as Higher Education involves language
skills, topic comprehension and sociological capabilities. Teachers explore
new teaching strategies which imply diverse goals and focus on different
cultural backgrounds.

The contributions of this book comment the multicultural awareness of the
students involved in learning another language and the facts implied in
teaching in a multicultural environment.
