Effective Learning and Teaching in Modern Languages

 

 

Foreword

 

Within Modern Languages, there is a long tradition of attention to the needs of learners, and of innovation in curriculum matters. This tradition springs partly from an awareness that language learners will always fall short of the skills routinely deployed by native speakers. It is also partly due to the inherent interdisciplinarity, which demands additional support for learning while inhibiting the teacher from settling into a comfortable disciplinary pattern. And in more recent times, innovation has been spurred by the need to attract students who now enjoy a vast choice of university subjects. This book brings together the fruits of that tradition to provide practical assistance for anyone teaching in Modern Languages in higher education. The editors have rightly identified language learning as their core concern.

 

A growing proportion of students of Modern Languages are concerned primarily with language learning, especially where language forms only one part of their degree programme, and where they wish to develop a language competence in support of their studies in another discipline. But however focused a learner is on mastering the language, they continually encounter the embeddedness of language in culture and society. This is a challenge, since language is always about something beyond the immediate task of understanding or producing sentences. It is also an enrichment, since the language learner comes to see the world in a more complex way, articulated in a language other than their own.

 

effective learning and teaching modern languageLanguage learning provides the context within which students of Modern Languages approach the associated disciplinary areas of linguistics, area studies, literature, cultural studies and business studies. This broad domain stretches over a substantial part of the remit of the UK Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies, within the Higher Education Academy. Significant parts of this remit go beyond the common concern of language students, and would take them into more specialized areas of study. But readers of this book will find much to help them in the activities and information resources of the Subject Centre. A particularly valuable resource is the Good Practice

 

Guide, a collection of commissioned articles by recognized authorities in the field. There are frequent references to it in the chapters of this book, and it xis available on the Subject Centre website (lang. Ltsn. Ac. Uk), along with a rich collection of teaching materials, extensive information, news and links related to learning and teaching in the three subject areas.

 

Modern Languages is one of the most interdisciplinary fields of study. The core activity of language learning leads away into almost every other field of study. Students and teachers are constantly presented with the opportunity to immerse themselves in a neighbouring discipline. The resulting itineraries are a source of renewal for the subject, and I am sure that this book will assist teachers in Modern Languages to navigate the diverse landscape as it changes around them.
