Title: Teaching Foreign Languages
Subtitle: Languages for Special Purposes
Description:

Teaching Foreign Languages: Languages for Special Purposes is a collection
of essays which will appeal to teachers of modern languages no matter the
level of instruction.

The essays deal with three main approaches of the teaching of languages for
special purposes in Europe, Asia and Africa:

*theoretical linguistics (lexis: French vocabulary; and semantics: French
copulative verbs);

*descriptive linguistics (compared linguistics: English – Romanian, English –
Serbian, French – Romanian, French – Serbian, and German – Macedonian);

*applied linguistics (language acquisition: English in Romania and Spanish in
Serbia; language education: Arabic in Italy, English in Bosnia-Herzegovina,
Croatia, Iran, Malaysia, Russia, Serbia, and the United Arab Emirates;
German in Serbia; lexicography: English, French, Romanian, Ruthenian and
Serbian; stylistics: English, French and Spanish; and translation: English,
Italian and Romanian).
