This collection of essays analyses the evolution of theory of intercultural competence and its relationship to education for citizenship. It does so by analysing the concepts of intercultural competence, including the notion of the intercultural speaker, by discussing the ways in which language education policy develops and by comparing the theories and purposes of foreign language education and education for citizenship.

This book examines the notions of ethics and equity in relation to language and communication in intercultural relations. Although these notions are often discussed, they are not always addressed with regard to specifi c subjects. Much intercultural discourse and dialogue in recent times has been coloured by the clash of civilizations (as described by Samuel Huntington), terrorist attacks such as 9/11, and the indelible effects which these events have had on dealings between different peoples, cultures and religions. This book discusses ethics and equity with regard to marginalized and privileged minorities, victims of abuse and of confl ict, researchers and practitioners, and language learners and speaker/users. It opens up spaces for a critical discourse of ethics and equity in language and intercultural communication as ‘new’ knowledge. This book was originally published as a special issue of Language and Intercultural Communication.

This volume explores the concept of 'citizenship', and argues that it should be understood both as a process of becoming and the ability to participate fully, rather than as a status that can be inherited, acquired, or achieved. From a courtroom in Bulawayo to a nursery in Birmingham, the authors use local contexts to foreground how the vulnerable, particularly those from minority language backgrounds, continue to be excluded, whilst offering a powerful demonstration of the potential for change offered by individual agency, resistance and struggle. In addressing questions such as 'under what local conditions does "dis-citizenship" happen?'; 'what role do language policies and pedagogic practices play?' and 'what kinds of margins and borders keep humans from fully participating'? The chapters in this volume shift the debate away from visas and passports to more uncertain and contested spaces of interpretation.

Die Fremdsprachendidaktik hat sich in den vergangenen zwanzig jahren als eigenständige wissenschaftliche Disziplin etabliert und in vielfältiger Weise ausdifferenziert. Neben den Forschungsergebnissen, die mittlerweile zum Bestand gesicherter Grundlagenkenntnisse zählen, sind aber auch neue Teildisziplinen, Fragestellungen, Themen und didaktische handlungs- und Forschungsfelder hinzugekommen. Beide Tendenzen - Konsolidierung wie auch Weiterentwicklung - ordnet und dokumentiert das Handbuch Fremdsprachdidaktik. (Forlagsomtale)

Wenn die Menschen in Europa in gut nachbarlichen Beziehungen miteinander leben, wenn sie sich untereinander verständigen und einander verstehen sollen, wird die Beherrschung von mehr als nur einer Fremdsprache immer wichtiger. Deshalb erheben sowohl der Europarat als auch die Europäische Union die Forderung, dass ihre Bürger neben ihrer Muttersprache noch zwei europäische Fremdsprachen lernen sollten. Das Jahr der Fremdsprachen 2001 schaffte den Impuls, sich mit der Frage zu beschäftigen, wie Konzepte des Lehrens und Erlernens mehrerer Sprachen entwickelt und in der Praxis entfaltet werden könnten. Das vorliegende Projekt bezieht sich auf das Lehren und Lernen von Fremdsprachen im schulischen Kontext. Es hat zum Ziel im Rahmen des Mehrsprachigkeitskonzepts die allgemeinen Grundlagen der Tertiärsprachendidaktik und -methodik zu entwickeln und am Beispiel der Sprachenfolge "Deutsch nach Englisch" zu exemplifizieren. Aus diesem Grund arbeiten das Europäische Fremdsprachenzentrum des Europarats und das Goethe-Institut Inter Nationes als Projektträger - unter Einbezug regionaler Institutionen, die mit Fremdsprachenunterricht befasst sind - zusammen.
