"Community-Based Language Learning offers a new framework for world language educators interested in integrating community-based language learning (CBLL) into their teaching and curricula. CBLL connects academic learning objectives with experiential learning, ranging from reciprocal partnerships with the community to one-directional learning situations.
This volume prepares teachers to implement CBLL by offering solid theoretical frameworks alongside real-world case studies and engaging exercises, all designed to help students build language skills and authentic relationships as they engage with world language communities in the US. Making the case that language learning can be a tool for social change, Community-Based Language Learning is a valuable resource for language educators at all levels, as well as students of language teaching methodology and community organizations working with immigrant populations."
