Language awareness as derived from the ecological approach: Critical ecological language awareness of an L2 teacher

Extract



Hadrian Lankiewicz

The aim of the chapter is to present theoretical considerations pertaining to critical language awareness of a foreign language teacher from the position of the ecological approach. Assuming critical theory as a starting point, the author proposes its further elaboration in the critical pedagogy with a particular focus on critical educational linguistics as put forth by van Lier (2004). Subsequently, the idea of teacher language awareness is delved into, accentuating its critical dimension. The ecological approach, comprehending language education as a complex, multi-layered eco-system, is perceived as a bridge for critical and non-critical aspects in language awareness offering new perspectives in the research on language awareness (Svalberg 2012). Critical ecological language awareness is underscored as a vital quality for an L2 language teacher with a potential of triggering critical language cognition, the latter being a prerequisite for political autonomy in language learning and teaching.
