Abstract

This is an essential text for gaining a deep appreciation of the scope, impact and connections between global languages policies and local education practices and cultures. It is an authentic representation of the authors’ current research and collaboration that shows how the information and communication explosion has shifted the languages education playing field to a new dynamic level of opportunity for learning, knowledge sharing, and active participation in the digital age. The extensive coverage of a multiplicity of contexts where languages learning is the key to success demonstrates how languages education needs to be front and centre in education policy and practices today, across disciplines, and in educating for work, leisure, and cultural understanding.

In presenting a rich portrayal of the breadth and depth of the impact of languages education policy across countries and education sectors this text provides powerful insights into global and local practices. It highlights the scope and needs of diverse communities and leads the way in the pursuit of languages education being seen as core.
