The Teaching of Modern Languages in Zambia

The teaching of modern languages in Zambia is undergoing profound
changes in response to cultural, social and political developments.
African languages continue to acquire greater recognition as seen in
translation of various official documents, notably the recent Draft
Constitution. At the same time, English is perceived as language of
international communication. French continues as the leading foreign
language in the country. However, the successful introduction of
Chinese and pressure to include German and Portuguese in the school
curriculum are raising prospects for the teaching of modern languages
in the country.

These developments call for analysis, debate and reflection. Hence,
the need for this book project. Papers concerning any aspect of the
teaching of modern languages in Zambia by language practitioners, such
as educators and writers will be considered for publication as book
chapters. Language requirements: Abstracts: English (US) and French
(France) Book Chapters: English (US) or French (France) Page length
