Product Description

Review

"This volume gives a perspective on the nature of language and cluture and looks at how the use of language in the real world helps us to understand how language is used to construct our social and cultural worlds."

- Featured in the Times Higher Education Textbook Guide

From the Back Cover

The concepts of language and culture have been transformed over the past decade, as globalisation and technology have made communication across geographical and cultural boundaries much more a part of our daily lives. This second edition of Teaching and Researching Language and Culture captures some of the major theoretical and empirical developments in the field of applied linguistics arising from these changes.

 

Presented in four sections, the book provides:

- a clear exposition of the socio-cultural perspective of language, culture and learning;

- a thorough account of current pedagogical programmes on language and culture informed by contemporary theoretical insights and empirical findings;

- an overview of methods for undertaking investigations on language, culture and learning, with blueprints for projects that readers can use to carry out their own research;

- additional sources and resources to help readers in their explorations.

 

Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect developments in the field, this second edition will be an invaluable resource to students and professionals new to the field.
