The new Handbuch Fremdsprachendidaktik, edited by Wolfgang Hallet (Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, Germany) & Frank G. Königs (Philipps-University Marburg, Germany) is out now. Divided into twelve chapters, each devoted to different aspects of learning and teaching a foreign, second or, more generally, an additional language, the book offers an excellent, up-to-date overview of current research and theory construction, its historical genesis, future potential and practical implications. This is a valuable resource for anyone professionally involved and interested in advancing the theory and practice of foreign/second, etc. education – including intercultural learning – in a rapidly changing world.
