Citizenship and Language Learning

Editor: Audrey Osler, Hugh Starkey
Publisher: Trentham Books

Language teachers across the world are increasingly recognizing their role as teachers of intercultural communication. Language-learning develops skills for communication across cultural boundaries. The quality of the communication depends on respect, tolerance and acceptance of basic standards of human rights such as equality and dignity.

Citizenship and Language Learning breaks new ground by bringing together and synthesizing contributions from practitioners and researchers in language teaching and citizenship. It draws on the work of the British Council in developing education for citizenship and good governance through language teaching.

This book develops a theory and practice of language teaching and learning for citizenship based on understanding and implementing human rights in education. It explores representations of cultures, curriculum and pedagogical frameworks, and issues of equality and diversity. Case studies are drawn from a range of learning contexts in Latin America, Europe and Asia. They consider young disadvantaged learners, e-learning exchanges, developing critical cultural awareness, civic education and language teaching, women's studies, and empowerment strategies for life-long learning.
