Title: Contexts and Cultures in Language Teaching and Learning
Series Title: Language in Intercultural Communication and education
Description:

Description
The chapters in this book all address the significance of the relationship between the aims and methods of language teaching and the contexts in which it takes place. Some do so by considering the implications of this for the ways in which we research language teaching. Others present the results of research and development work, which shows that the various social and cultural forces in the contemporary world are changing the role of language teaching and learning.
