Description

The 17 case studies presented in this volume show the increasing need for foreign language programs in a global society. The work advocates for a combination of foreign language studies with career oriented disciplinary studies. The volume explores resources, curricular models and methods, assessment and examples of successfully integrated language and content education. This book explores critical issues at the juncture of language teaching and content teaching and proposes a range of case studies linking language education, content education and language use in professional settings across the United States and Europe. Central to this endeavor is a comparative perspective of language teaching and assessment, content teaching, and professional applications on both continents. As such it focuses on four key issues: resources and programs for teaching Spanish which among world languages boasts the largest enrollment among U.S. students at both the secondary and higher education levels; original curricular models for teaching English in Turkey, Japanese for business, European studies in Europe and the U.S., and multiple languages for academic disciplines and professional purposes in the U. S.; assessment of teaching outcomes (i.e., language proficiency development) in both the United States and the European Union; and, real-life examples of applied languages and cultures for the professions, with, again, a focus on the European Union and transatlantic relations.
