The Magic of Innovation: New Techniques and Technologies in Teaching Foreign Languages

This volume focuses on innovative approaches to teaching foreign language courses offered to non-language degree students. It includes essays related to the innovative use of ICTs, new developments in methodology, approaches to course and materials design, and the contribution of language theory to foreign language teaching. As the book brings together researchers and practitioners working in a variety of contexts, it provides detailed insight into ways the same challenges are dealt with in different educational environments.

The ideas and experiences analysed in this collection of essays will appeal to anyone interested in the current trends in foreign language teaching and learning, particularly educationalists. The best practices in FLT that the book offers will be a source of inspiration for in-service teachers and course designers, while the theoretical backgrounds provided in each chapter will be valuable to pre-service teachers and stimulating to researchers.
