Grand Challenges and Great Potential in Foreign Language Teaching and Learning
Hlas, Anne Cummings
Foreign Language Annals, v51 n1 p46-54 Spr 2018
This article argues for the field of foreign languages to begin to identify and define our Grand Challenges, which are difficult yet solvable problems facing our field. Seeking answers to these challenges can provide new opportunities for collaboration and can spur new directions and innovation within language learning and teaching. Researchable questions that emerge from these Grand Challenges can form a research trajectory, build community support, and contribute to changing public opinion about the role of languages in greater society.
