Learning the arts of linguistic survival : languaging, tourism, life

This book examines what happens when tourists learn to speak other languages. From ordering a coffee to following directions the author argues for a new perception of the relationship between tourism and languages from one based on the acquisition of basic, functional skills to one which sustains and even strengthens intercultural dialogue.
