Språkskap project book published!

8 September, 2011 - 13:40

The Språkskap project concluded with the publishing of a project book titled: Språkskap – Swedish as a Social Language, edited by Brendon Clark and Karl Lindemalm. The book lays out a vision for how to rethink how language learning can be supported outside the formal classroom. The Språkskap project arises out of the observation that those who are interested in learning Swedish while in Sweden, often struggle to tap into the most powerful learning resource available: everyday interactions with Swedish speakers. The project explored a shift in focus from learning vocabulary and grammar alone, to a more holistic and practical approach that involves where, when and with whom learners interact, and how to support them in turning their interactions into learning experiences. Språkskap was a collaboration between Folkuniversitetet,  Ergonomidesign, and the Interactive Institute, funded by VINNOVA.
