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.

Book Information


Title: Content and Foreign Language Integrated Learning
Subtitle: Contributions to Multilingualism in European Contexts
Edited By: Yolanda Ruiz de Zarobe
Juan Manuel Sierra
Francisco Gallardo del Puerto
Series Title: Linguistic Insights - Volume 108

The present volume bears witness to the Europewide character of the Content
and Language Integrated Learning(CLIL) enterprise by featuring
contributions from researchers and teacher-educators from a range of
European countries spanning the geographical expanse of the continent from
east (Estonia) to west (United Kingdom) and from north (Finland) to south
(Spain, Italy). More importantly, the different national contexts are
characterised by diverse cultural stances and policies vis-à-vis second and
foreign language learning in general and learning specific languages in
particular and it is evident that such contextual factors impinge on what
are identified as central concerns both in CLIL implementation and research.
