Call for Chapters
This call for chapters may be of interest to some:
We have place for 2-3 additional chapters in an edited collection titled ”Productive Foreign Language Skills for an Intercultural World. A Guide (not only) for Teachers”; publisher: Peter Lang (Frankfurt/Main); going to press: first quarter 2014. The book contains articles combining state-of-the-art theory/research results with implications for language instruction, and concentrates on developing higher-level skills (written and oral production, discourse and intercultural competences, interaction and mediation as understood in CEFR, etc.), with some place also devoted to the role of cross-linguistic influence in language teaching.
