Requirement for innovation and research in language education in Switzerland

  • Georges Lüdi Lüdi

Abstract

The present contribution appeals for a holistic approach of the problems of foreign language acquisition and instruction, and for an integrating view of dynamic multilingual actions and teaching and learning control by means of common standards. Furthermore, the article discloses that important parts in language research are missng und thus impeding reasonable decisions in education politics. These gaps must be filled and, in order to maximize synergic effects, the artificial division of research and instruction, in particular of applied research, teachers‘ training and job, minimized by some form of reflexivity practice.
