Modern Languages Across the Curriculum

Grenfell, Michael (ed.) (2002) Modern Languages Across the Curriculum, London, RoutledgeFalmer, 222pp.

Record type: Book


This book sets out the agenda for the future of modern language teaching in schools. It aims to look beyond the dominant methods of second language teaching to a new approach emphasising the integration of language learning within the wider curriculum. Through research and case studies from UK, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Finland, the book shows how teachers and policy-makers are increasingly moving towards a system where second languages are taught through other curriculum subjects, rather than just alongside them. Key ideas covered:
- Recent trends and issues in teaching and learning modern languages; - The rationale for integrating language across the curriculum; - How cross-curricular language teaching is developing across Europe; - Practical materials and useful ideas for teachers and policy-makers.
This timely book will interest all foreign language teachers, particularly those on in-service of higher-level degree courses. Reseachers and Applied Lininguists will find useful the practical application of theoretical discussion and reports of this approach to second language learning. It will also be useful reading for student teachers and teacher educators, and policy-makers internationally.
