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: The NNEST Lens
Subtitle: Non Native English Speakers in TESOL
Edited By: Ahmar Mahboob
Description:

The NNEST Lens invites you to imagine how the field of TESOL and applied
linguistics can develop if we use the multilingual, multicultural, and
multinational perspectives of a NNEST (Non Native English Speakers in
TESOL) lens to re-examine our assumptions, practices, and theories in the
field. The NNEST lens as described in and developed through this volume is
a lens of multilingualism, multinationalism, and multiculturalism through
which NNESTs and NESTs--as classroom practitioners, researchers, and
teacher educators--take diversity as a starting point in their
understanding and practice of their profession. The 16 original
contributions to this volume include chapters that question theoretical
frameworks and research approaches used in studies in applied linguistics
and TESOL, as well as chapters that share strategies and approaches to
classroom teaching, teacher education, and education management and policy.
As such, this volume will be of interest to a wide range of students,
practitioners, researchers, and academics in the fields of education and
linguistics.
