Risager, Karen, Ed.
Four articles on language, culture, and interlanguage are included in this volume. The first by Karen Risager, "Sprog, kultur, og internationalisering" ("Language, Culture, and Internationalization") takes issue with the very broad perception that foreign language and culture cannot be separated in instruction. The second article, "Kulturforstaelse som eksamenkrav--dansk som et andetsprog for voksne" ("Cultural Awareness as an Exam Requirement--Danish as a Second Language for Adults"), by Anette Hagel-Sorensen and Inger Jacobsen, is drawn from observations at Studieskolen in Copenhagen, where the purpose of instruction is to prepare second language learners of Danish for a language test they must take to participate in further education. "Dansk kultur formidlet gennem Test 1 og Test 2--en kritisk analyse af den skriftilige eksamen i dansk for voksne indvandrere" (Danish Culture Communicated Through Test 1 and Test 2--A Critical Analysis of the Written Exam in Danish for Adult Immigrants), by Karen-Margrete Frederiksen, examines the cultural aspects of two specific Danish tests (Test 1 and Test 2) for immigrant adults. The last article, "Interlanguage Pragmatics," by Gabriele Kasper, focuses on the field of interlanguage pragmatics, reviewing research, discussing problems in establishing pragmatic norms for language teaching and research, and discussing studies examining the effect of instruction on the development of pragmatic competence.
