Title: Language, Learning and Teaching
Subtitle: Irish Research Perspectives
Edited By: Fiona B. Farr

Description:

This book showcases recent work carried out by members of the Irish Association for Applied Linguistics (IRAAL). By focusing on the relationship between language and its users within the micro context of Ireland, the contributors generate insights which promise to open up future avenues for Applied Linguistics research, both in Ireland and beyond. The collection addresses two main themes within the field of Applied Linguistics: language learning and teaching, and the study of language and its discourses in context. In order to ensure that the volume is relevant to as wide an audience as is possible, it is not theoretically focused; rather, each chapter deals with a specific real world issue in context. The book provides an account of language problems that have arisen given the increasingly multilingual nature of Ireland, examines the current status of the Irish language and explores the potential for new technologies to enhance language learning and teaching.
