by David Block,Deborah Cameron

This book considers the issues globalization raises for second language learning and teaching. Block and Cameron's collection shows how, in an economy based on services and information, the linguistic skills of workers becomes increasingly important. New technologies make possible new kinds of language teaching, and language becomes an economic commodity with a value in the global marketplace. This has implications for how and why people learn languages, and for which languages they learn.Drawing together the various strands of the globalization debate, this rich and varied collection of contributions explores issues such as:*The commodification of language(s) and language skills*The use of new media and new technologies in language learning and teaching*The effects of globalization on the language teaching industry*New forms of power and resistance.
