Interpreting Communicative Language Teaching by S.J. Savignon

Book Description

The work documents reform initiatives in Japan, the United States, Hong Kong, Taiwan and continental Europe to provide a global perspective on language teaching for communicative competence. Four major themes recur throughout the volume: the multifaceted nature of language teaching; the highly contextualized nature of CLT; the futility of defining a "native speaker" in the postcolonial, postmodern world; and the overwhelming influence of high-stakes tests on language teaching. This text should be a useful tool for language teachers, teacher educators, and policymakers.
