Book Information


Title: Handbook of Foreign Language Communication and Learning
Edited By: Karlfried Knapp
Barbara Seidlhofer
Series Title: Handbooks of Applied Linguistics [HAL] 6)

This volume focuses on how far the policies, principles and practices of
foreign language teaching and learning are, or can be, informed by
theoretical considerations and empirical findings from the linguistic
disciplines. Part I deals with the nature of foreign language learning in
general, while Part II explores issues arising from linguistic,
socio-political, cultural and cognitive perspectives. Part III and IV then
consider the different factors that have to be taken into account in
designing the foreign language subject and the various approaches to
pedagogy that have been proposed. Part V finally addresses questions
concerning assessment of learner proficiency and the evaluation of courses
designed to promote it.
