about this item

This book examines mediation between languages and how people mediate effectively, the strategies they use and what they do and do not do as intermediaries, the processes involved, and challenges they face. It draws on a study of Greek learners/users of English and written mediation in English from the Greek national foreign language examination system (State Certificate of Language Proficiency/Kratiko Pistopiitiko Glossomathias). It describes how the term “mediation” is used in different disciplines, with an emphasis on foreign language education; the definition of mediation and comparisons with other forms of parallel language use; mediation tasks, including designing tasks for teaching and assessment; mediation outcomes; the effect of task type on strategy; mediation strategies in low vs. high-proficiency scripts; and implications for pedagogy and research.
