Learning and language in the international university

£6.99

Product description

This academic book looks at university spaces as microcosms of a wider world wherein English, while undoubtedly the most universal and influential language in the world today, takes its place alongside a host of other linguistic norms. Universities typically attempt to pursue globalist or internationalist strategies and place themselves alongside the other institutions of the world, which invariably brings international influences and various languages: how do these languages fit in within an linguistically anglocentric world? How are they learnt, if indeed they are in any meaningful way? What impact does this melding of worlds  and words have on national and ethnic identities? These questions and more are investigated by the many talented contributors to this book.

This copy is itself is in decent condition, though the cover is scratched and worn in places (please see attached photographs). The content remains are deep and insightful as ever it was, however.
