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: Code Choice in the Language Classroom
Written By: Glenn S. Levine
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693327
Description:

"Code Choice in the Language Classroom" argues that the foreign language
classroom is and should be regarded as a multilingual community of practice
rather than as a perpetually deficient imitator of an exclusive
second-language environment. From a sociocultural and ecological
perspective, Levine guides the reader through a theoretical, empirical, and
pedagogical treatment of the important roles of the first language, and of
code-switching practices, in the language classroom. Intended for SLA
researchers, language teachers, language program directors, and graduate
students of foreign languages and literatures, the book develops a
framework for thinking about all aspects of code choice in the language
classroom and offers concrete proposals for designing and carrying out
instruction in a multilingual classroom community of practice.
