Written by researchers with real-life experience working with languages, Language Acts and Worldmaking acknowledges the history and current realities of language teaching and learning. It boldly sug­gests ways forward for reform and policy, setting languages at the heart of a consciously trans­formative set of goals. The book encourages engagement with leading practitioners and re­searchers to stimulate readers’ curiosity about how the languages we use affect how we think and feel about ourselves, other people, and the world around us.

About the Language Acts and Worldmaking series:
This series delves into the most relevant and important topics around language learning, teaching and policy, some of which have never been addressed in academic texts before, covering seven themes within seven different volumes with contributors from universities across the UK, US and rest of world.
