Language learning and teaching in the context of twin cities: survey of experieces and needs : recommendations for the promotion of languages
The twinning of cities and municipalities possibly represents the largest platform for encounter and mutual acquaintance established in modern times. However, can such a merger between the fellow-citizens of Europe be achieved without first addressing in a determined way the issue of languages, of teaching languages and their diversity? This publication is a report on research (2001-2003) based on responses to questionnaires sent to 81 towns, representing 328 twinnings in Europe and the world.
