Foreign language competences are vital not only for the individual European citizen, but in a more encompassing perspective, for mobility, socio-economic development and the competitiveness of Europe in a global world. - For more than a decade, Professor Wolfgang Mackiewicz of the Freie Universität Berlin has led a string of European university cooperation projects, launched from within the membership of the Conseil Européen pour les Langues / European Language Council. The overarching aim of these projects has been to map out the needs for foreign language and intercultural communication skills across Europe; to identify examples of good practice; and to propose possible solutions to challenges faced. The book, written by experts from seven European countries, pays tribute to Professor Mackiewicz and his work in this field, and it discusses how universities can continue to develop socially relevant university programmes in the Area of Languages, underpinned by solid research and in close cooperation with representatives from the world of work.
