About this book

This work builds on the assumption that language learning and teaching needs to be made more relevant to the 'glocalised' digital world we live in. Its authors argue that staff in Higher Education (HE) must prepare students for effective online interaction and explores the digital, linguistic and critical intercultural components of ‘global citizenship’. The book pivots around an innovative research study; linguistic politeness frameworks are revisited to analyse the written online exchanges on an Online International Learning (OIL) - or intercultural telecollaborative - project between the UK and France.Through the use of cyberpragmatics, and inspired by Meyer and Land’s ‘threshold concept pedagogy’, the authors examine the challenges and solutions identified by an ‘expert student’ in managing rules of engagement and intercultural awareness when interacting online. This book will appeal to students and scholars of applied linguistics, education, sociolinguistics and intercultural communication, and provide a valuable resource for teacher trainers, language teachers and educators across the world.

Reviews

“This book offers very up-to-date information on very important issues of today’s education in an inter-cultural scenario and, specifically, within the realm of internet-mediated communication. It shows how cyberpragmatics may be fruitfully applied to computer-mediated learning. The chapters in the book offer detailed analyses of web-based intercultural communicative competence and related issues such as the management of politeness strategies in communicative practices that are devoid of physical (or cultural) co-presence.” (Francisco Yus, University of Alicante, Spain)
