Synopsis

Language Education Today: Between Theory and Practice is a collection of essays that appeal to teachers of modern languages (almost exclusively English) regardless of 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).

Georgeta RATA holds a PhD in Linguistics from the University in Bucharest (Romania). She is a qualified EFL teacher and has been teaching languages for almost 33 years. Her extensive experience includes both general English and several areas of ESP, and she has published widely in these areas. She also has cross-linguistic expertise, having worked in French and Romanian as well as English, and understands the practical issues involved in teaching and learning different languages and transferring research ideas from one language to another. She is the Scientific Secretary of her Department, Editor-in-chief of the Journal of Linguistic Studies, a contributor to the English Profile research project, and regularly organises international events in the field of language education.
