Foreign and second language teaching should prepare learners to use a language with fluency and accuracy, and also to speak with people who have different cultural identities, social values and behaviours. This text aims to define precisely what competencies are required, how these can be included in teachers' objectives and methods, and how the ability to communicate across cultural differences can be assessed.

This book investigates whether and to what extent foreign language textbooks can contribute to promoting adolescent pupils' acquisition of intercultural communicative competence. It gives a full scientific account of a research project carried out amongst Flemish learners of German. The focus of the research was on the relationships between the culture teaching approaches adopted in textbooks and the pupils' learning of culture. Although the sub-title refers to a particular group of pupils learning a particular language, the study has more general bearing and constitutes a substantial contribution to the literature, and in particular empirical research, on the development of intercultural competence in and through foreign language education.The composition of the volume reflects the affective, cognitive and contact dimensions of the culture learning process. It also gives space to the theoretical platform on which the research was built, and to the research methodology adopted. Chapter 1 sets out to contextualise and define the research topic. It clarifies the study's position within the field of culture-and-language learning-and-teaching theory, practice and research. It also situates the investigation into the specific context of teaching and learning foreign languages-and-cultures in Flanders. In chapter 2 the theoretical framework informing the study is developed. Chapter 3 provides an overview of the techniques of data collection and analysis employed, of the kinds of data collected, and of the chronology of data collection. Chapters 4, 5 and 6 provide an interpretative description and analysis of the investigation's key concepts. Chapters 4 and 5 focus on the pupils' culture learning processes and analyse relationships between attitude, contact and perception data. In chapter 6 the culture teaching approaches adopted in the investigated textbook series are described and evaluated with regard to their potential for promoting the pupils' learning of culture. Chapter 7, finally, provides a summary overview of the study's main findings and presents the main conclusions that can be drawn from the evidence presented in earlier chapters. It estimates the value of the study's research methodology and theoretical framework. It also reflects on how the research findings can find application and implementation.

Die Schule ist dazu aufgerufen, aktive gesellschaftliche Teilhabe, interkulturelle Kommunikation und Persönlichkeitsbildung zu fördern. Dazu bedarf es neuer Unterrichtskonzepte in allen Fächern. Die vorliegende Arbeit zeigt, wie der Englischunterricht durch den Einsatz von Service Learning diesen Zielen gerecht werden kann, indem schulisches Lernen mit gemeinnützigem Engagement verbunden wird. Im Fremdsprachenunterricht kommt es neben dem Spracherwerb auch auf das Erlangen interkultureller Kompetenz an. In der empirischen Studie wurden daher journalistische Arbeitsweisen genutzt, um interkulturelle und sprachliche Fertigkeiten weiter zu entwickeln. Auf der Basis von Action Research wird die Wirksamkeit und der Mehrwert von Intercultural Service Learning an einem Gymnasium untersucht. Dabei zeigt sich, dass Intercultural Service Learning nicht nur im Hinblick auf den sprachlichen und interkulturellen Lernzuwachs sehr effizient ist, sondern auch nachhaltig zur Völkerverständigung beitragen kann. Die Arbeit wurde mit dem Franz-Emanuel-Weinert-Preis der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München ausgezeichnet.

A wide variety of contexts from HE, initial teacher education, intercultural training, SMEs, management contexts, NHS and workplace diversity training are all represented here and this broader cultural and social base to the volume is one of its particular strengths. Often the discourse gets ghettoized into one of those listed and it is exciting to see these brought together so well.

Associated with an important epistemological shift from language proficiency to language criticality in applied linguistic research, this book provides a sociological perspective on foreign language education in Japan. By employing ethnographic methods to investigate the relationship between three core analytical elements – foreign language education geared towards the development of learners’ intercultural communicative competence; nihonjinron and native-speakerism as potentially constraining ideological forces; and EFL practices observed at four Japanese junior high schools – the author not only shares valuable insights into how English is taught and learned in a stratum of the Japanese EFL system which has received limited attention from researchers over the years, but also clarifies the fundamental and complex changes currently taking place in the Japanese EFL landscape. This multi-faceted book also calls for greater consideration in postmodern ideology critique for the stratified nature of social processes as well as the material conditions and underlying generative mechanisms involved in the production and consumption of (including resistance to) ideological discourse. Accordingly, it outlines several challenges shaping ideology research in educational settings, and responds by developing a realist-oriented theoretical and methodological approach to address these challenges. This book serves as a unique point of reference for the study of parallel nationalist discourses embedded in foreign language education systems around the world.

Noam Chomsky, der weltbekannte Sprachtheoretiker und streitbare Gesellschaftskritiker wurde am 7. Dezember 1998 siebzig Jahre alt. Zu diesem Anlass hat der Philo Verlag einen Gratulationsband herausgebracht, der das Spannungsfeld von Chomskys Denken zwischen Sprache und Politik anhand seiner eigenen Arbeiten ausloten will. Der Band umfast exemplarische und bisher nicht übersetzte Arbeiten Chomskys von Ende der 60er Jahre bis heute (u.a. den berühmten Aufsatz "Some tasks for the left" von 1969). Damit wird die Vielfalt und der Antrieb seines Denkens auch all jenen zugänglich gemacht, die den Linguisten, aber nicht den politischen Philosophen, den libertären Sozialisten, aber nicht den scharfsinnigen Analytiker abendländischer Staatsmacht kennen. Der Autor: Noam Chomsky, geb. 1928; Professor für Linguistik und Philosophie am Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Begründer der generativen Transformationsgrammatik. Neben sprachwissenschaftlichen Problemen setzt sich Chomsky immer wieder kritisch mit aktuellen wirtschafts- und medienpolitischen Fragestellungen auseinander. 1998 erschien von Noam Chomsky bei Philo "Haben und Nichthaben"
