Teaching and Learning Languages and Intercultural Communication is not a neutral enterprise. Critical Pedagogy, as a movement and an intellectual field, engages with the political and ideological questions raised in educational practices. In this book the respective fields of languages, intercultural communication and critical pedagogy are brought into dialogue, dissent and reflection.
