ODYSSEUS - Second language at the workplace: Language needs of migrant workers: organising language learning for the vocational/workplace context
Matilde Grünhage-Monetti, E. Halewijn, Chris Holland

English, French


(0 ratings, 0 comments)

This book is constructed around a conviction by the authors of the key role of vocational and workplace-related second language provision towards social and economic integration and participation. Knowledge and communicative competences have become pivotal elements of vocational and professional performance at all hierarchical levels for all employees (mother-tongue speakers and speakers of other languages). This publication, which is the result of a cooperation project between the Council of Europe and the European Commission, is an invaluable resource for current and intending workplace language practitioners, as well as company personnel, unions and policy makers. It describes the situation for vocational workplace language development in several eastern and western European countries. It notes the differences in political climate, industrial development and economic resources, and highlights the issues for second language provision in each country. Most importantly for practitioners, it provides up-to-date guidelines for development of vocational and workplace language, based on international theory and practice.
