The aim of this book is to offer a broad picture of the current state of academic research on foreign language teaching for the tourism sector from different perspectives and cultural backgrounds. This multilingual volume includes sixteen essays written in four different languages – Spanish, German, French and English – of relevance for tourism. The articles offer different approaches and methods – most of them in applied linguistics – and constitute research studies as well as practical teaching proposals for different languages. The practical teaching proposals have been offered in training programmes for tourism studies at different European universities.

This volume will contribute to the foundation of a specific discipline which combines foreign language teaching and learning on the one hand and tourism on the other, its main trends and the skills it requires, and suggests fruitful directions for future research in this field.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
