Summary

This book focuses on narrowing the gap between the often conflicting theoretical and practical imperatives faced by language teachers in an internationalised higher education context. It does so by providing comprehensive conceptual discussions of emerging critical intercultural language pedagogies as well as empirical accounts and case studies from the frontline.

Review:

This book constitutes a big step forward in the field of language and culture teaching. It contains a comprehensive and insightful discussion of the gap between theory and practice and presents a very thoughtful analysis of an innovative teacher-researcher collaborative project aimed at investigating different ways of developing university students' critical languaculture awareness as part of the internationalisation process.

Based on her own research, Adriana Diaz's Guide to Practice provides a pedagogic framework that seeks to bridge the gap between theory and practice as well as between language and culture in the language classroom. This book invites readers to rethink and reflect critically about the complex process of teaching language AND culture, which is an increasingly key issue in a more integrated approach to language and culture in language education.
