Teaching World Languages for Social Justice
The arguments in favor of language education have proceeded largely from perspectives that have failed to critically examine the marketplace ideology pervasive in the field. These ideological influences not only hold our endeavors in tension with stated objectives, but influence language education in Christian settings in ways that are inconsistent with a broader responsibility to fellow humans. The author explicates the contexts of foreign language advocacy in the United States, and comments on the challenges for Christian educators.
