Description/Abstract

This book presents the European language teacher of tomorrow. It deals with recent trends and future developments in the training of second language teachers in Europe. Based on an EU-commissioned study of thiry-two countries, the book sets out the current provision of language teacher training across age phases. Both pre-service and in-service teacher training is covered. This detail is used to provide a needs analysis of training, on the basis of which a series of policy-orientated recommendations is developed. Finally, a professional profile of the European language teacher is constructed which lists the likely range of training and experience of tomorrow's teachers. These features are described in terms of organisation, content and structure. The book is framed by coverage of the contextual background to the study, both in terms of national priorities and EU policies, and a theoretical consideartion of the issues in language teacher training.
