Description - Globalization and Language Teaching by David Block

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. David Block, Deborah Cameron, A. Suresh Canagarajah, John Gray, Roxy Harris, Monica Heller, Claire Kramsch, Ryuko Kubota, Constant Leung, Ben Rampton, Steven L. Thorne, Catherine Wallace
