Globalisation in Foreign Language Teaching: Establishing Transatlantic Links in Higher Education
Canado, Maria Luisa Perez
Higher Education Quarterly, v64 n4 p392-412 Oct 2010
This article makes an explicit comparison between the reconfiguration of tertiary language education in Europe, the USA and Canada. It argues that, despite certain minor differences between continents, the same trends are operative across the Atlantic. It then examines each of them, illustrating how similar forces are at work in shaping higher education language teaching, how analogous policy frameworks are being employed to channel them and how parallel challenges and responses can be detected transatlantically. The conclusion is that unifying efforts and connecting initiatives has highly beneficial effects for advancing the application of higher education language policy worldwide.
