Theoretical Framework For Language Education And Teaching (eBook)
Sobre o livro
Educational linguistics is transcultural, with research in the field adopting an international scope. Educational systems, on the contrary, are culture-bound. As a consequence, actual teaching differs across countries, and sometimes even among provinces, local educational authorities, and schools. However, a globalized world needs to share the various meanings of "e;knowing a language"e; and "e;teaching a language"e;, as language is the main factor of both cultural identity and national and international interaction.The framework offered here is built on eight "e;hypotheses"e;, logical models that provide the potential common core of a non-culture-bound theory of language education and of language teaching. The book thus suggests a common terminology, some common principles, and a basic paradigm to be shared in both theoretical and practical research in edu-linguistics, consequently going beyond the borders implied by such titles as European framework, American standards, and Chinese guidelines.
