Developing Institutional Language Policy

Developing Institutional Language Policy by Nemira Mačianskienė, Version 2011, WG4 R developing institutional language policy.pdf (0.2 MB) - Higher education institutions face challenges set by Bologna process, the implementation of which requires creating conditions for language learning and intercultural competence acquisition. Although higher education institutions in Lithuania maintain different and in a way promiscuous approaches to the role of HEI in the development of students‘ linguistic and intercultural competences, but a certain institutional policy with regard to language learning and teaching has inevitably been formed on the institutional level, though not always defined by normative documents. The aim of the research is to summarise the development of language policy in HEIs on the basis of the practice of European higher education institutions. The research applied the findings of ENLU (European Network for the Promotion of Language Learning among All Undergraduates) and MOLAN (Network for the Exchange of Information about Good Practices that Serve to Motivate Language Learners), performing comparative and content analysis. The descriptive statistics and analysis of research into the practical organisation of language learning and teaching provided at VMU served as the basis aiming to identify preconditions for institutional language policy formation.

Language Policies in European Higher Education Area: Babes-Bolyai University - a Case Study by Roxana‐Maria Gâz, WG4 R LANGUAGE POLICIES EHEA case babes Bolyay RO.pdf (0.4 MB) - Languages are an important part of our lives. They do not only help us
communicate with one another, but they also contribute to our self‐improvement,
they help the development of the economy and of the business environment.
Therefore, universities and governments have to work on promoting languages,
language learning and teaching. This article focuses largely on the language
policies of the European Union, on the European higher education area, and
particularly on the actions taken in order to implement the recommendations made
by the European institutions in what concerns language learning. Furthermore,
the article presents the preliminary results of a survey carried out among the
Romanian students of Babeş‐Bolyai University the purpose of which was to see
their satisfaction as to the language teaching and the offer of languages within their
university. Therefore, this was a good way to see whether the European Union
recommendation on the teaching and learning of foreign languages were
implemented in Romania and in higher education.
