Language teachers, politics, and cultures by Michael Byram( )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book investigates how geopolitical changes are influencing language teaching in general and the cultural dimension in particular and discusses the pedagogical opportunities such changes offer teachers and learners. The book views foreign language teaching as having a strong political character that responds to the social and political changes of the contemporary world. This is particularly evident in the cultural dimension of language teaching through which learners are introduced to other countries and their values and beliefs. The book demonstrates the importance of these issues for all language teachers by investigating the effect of major social and political change in Denmark and England. Chapter titles include the following: "European Integration and the European Dimension: Teachers' Views"; "European Integration: Political and Educational Trends"; "The Cultural Dimension in Foreign Language Education"; "Teachers' Views on the Cultural Dimension"; "Stereotypes, Prejudices, and Tolerance"; "Learning By Experience: Contacts Abroad"; and "New Relationships between Language and Culture--the Way Forward." Four appendices containing a written survey instrument, oral interview questions, and two summaries of supplementary empirical data, as well as extensive references are included. (Kft)

From foreign language education to education for intercultural citizenship : essays and reflections by Michael Byram( )

17 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays and reflections starts from an analysis of the purposes of foreign language teaching and argues that these should include educational objectives which are ultimately similar to those of education for citizenship. It does so by a journey through reflections on what is possible and desirable in the classroom and how language teaching has a specific role in education systems which have long had, and often still have, the purpose of encouraging young people to identify with the nation state."--Jacket

Becoming interculturally competent through education and training by Anwei Feng( )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of intercultural competence is the avowed purpose of teachers/trainers in commercial training and further and higher education, and yet the approaches are often seen as different and even in opposition. This book shows that there is complementarity in 'education' and 'training' in theory and in practice. The first group of chapters focuses on analysis of intercultural experience and the competence needed to be successful in that experience. The following chapters describe the practice of courses in both commercial and educational contexts where it becomes evident that 'education' and 'training' are indeed complementary without denying the tensions which exist and the expectations different learner groups may have. This book is thus not simply another discussion of the theory of interculturality but a juxtaposition of theory and practice to the benefit of both
Bicultural and trilingual education : the Foyer Model in Brussels by Michael Byram( )

15 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 1,349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of articles which describe and assess the Foyer Model, a project for schooling minority children in Brussels, which aims for bicultural and trilingual education. It demonstrates the need for an appropriate education model in a culturally and linguistically complex society. The Foyer Model was created to help Spanish, Moroccan, Italian and Turkish children in Brussels. It recognizes the need for proficiency in their home language and also in the two languages of Brussels - French and Dutch. It also aims to ease any conflicts between their culture of origin and their host culture. This book originated in evaluations conducted as the first pupils ended their primary school careers. It assesses the model's success so far and reports on those who work with it every day. This is not an exhaustive account, but rather an introduction to the programme's main characteristics and its importance to Europe as a whole

The Common European Framework of Reference : the globalisation of language education policy by Michael Byram( )

17 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages was published a decade ago and has been influential ever since, not only in its European 'home' but throughout the world. This book traces the processes of the influence by inviting authors from universities and ministries in 11 countries to describe and explain what happened in their case. There are everyday factors of curriculum development - which sometimes include coincidence and happenstance - and there are also traditions of resistance or acceptance of external influences in policy-making. Such factors have always existed in bilateral borrowing from one country to another but the CEFR is a supra-national document accessible through globalised communication. The book is thus not only focused on matters of language education but is also a Comparative Education case-study of policy borrowing under new conditions
