Title: Language Education Today
Subtitle: Between Theory and Practice
Edited By: Georgeta Raţă

Language Education Today: between Theory and Practice is a collection of
essays that appeals to teachers of modern languages (almost exclusively
English) no matter the level of instruction. The essays deal with three
main aspects of the opposition Linguistic Identity vs. Multilingualism:
language education (mother tongue – Turkish, Kurdish, and Serbian; contact
linguistics – the impact of Slavic and of German on modern Romanian; the
opposition L1 vs. L2 – Arabic, Farsi, Urdu and Serbian vs. English; and
contrastive studies – German and Macedonian); English language teaching and
learning (English as a Foreign or Second Language taught to Serbian and
Ruthenian students; English for Specific Purposes – Business English,
Information Technology English, the English of hotel terminology, and the
English of business media taught to Romanian students; English language
teaching and assessing methods to Thai, Italian, Malaysian, and Croatian
students; and the profile of the language teacher in the universities of
the F.Y.R. of Macedonia and of Romania); and linguistic issues (with focus
on some English word histories and on some English modal verbs, on French
spelling and on some French verbs of animal communication, and on the Latin
Plesiosauria Nomenclature).
