Rethinking Directions in Language Learning and Teaching at University Level
Loranc-Paszylk, Barbara, Ed.
This volume provides a timely focus on various aspects related to foreign language learning and teaching within the university context. It discusses current issues, such as: increasing popularity of English Medium Instruction (EMI), communication in English as a Lingua Franca, staying abroad, and provisions of English for professional or academic purposes. The chapters examine the (re)use of traditional methods and techniques to improve pedagogical practices in the new challenging contexts that arise due to contemporary social developments. The book aims at allowing readers to get better understanding of university students' linguistic needs and to explore a number of practical pedagogical implications. It will be of interest to both researchers and practitioners working in the university context.
