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: Intercultural Dialogue in Practice
Subtitle: Managing Value Judgment through Foreign Language Education
Written By: Stephanie Ann Houghton
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847697240
Series Title: Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education
Description:

The term intercultural dialogue has become a buzzword at policy level, but there
is a pressing need to synchronise the terminology of policymakers with that of
academics. An overarching aim of this book is to explore the wide-ranging
terminology relevant to intercultural dialogue in order to promote clearer
consideration of the underlying issues. More specifically, this book reports the
findings of a research project conducted in Japan that brought teaching practice
to bear upon some of the main conflicting theoretical perspectives on how value
judgment should be managed in foreign language education. At the heart of this
issue lies the management of prejudice, which is a key dynamic in intercultural
dialogue that brings many other factors into play.
