Policies for Global Business Languages

CALL FOR PAPERS

Global Business Languages is an annual publication containing articles on issues related to foreign languages, and English as a Second Language, taught for specific purposes (business, science, hotel and restaurant, law, etc.). We encourage submissions of manuscripts pertaining to Chinese, English for non-natives, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish research, and others. All articles must be written in English, with foreign language examples as needed. See formatting requirements below.

GOALS, RESULTS AND SUCCESS

We encourage authors to consider sharing their expertise in research and teaching related to the setting of meaningful business language goals and the assessment of the results and successes they have achieved. This may involve internships or study abroad programs that have been considered particularly effective by either students or faculty, and the criteria and practices that led to the success. While anecdotal reports provide a personal testimony of goals well met, we invite authors to provide the metrics by which they measure success in business language use in the professional world or in an instructional environment.
