Summary

Principles and strategies for learning second languages for the purpose of effective intercultural communication are discussed, with particular reference to the teaching of English, the dominant foreign language in Denmark. In the first section, the official, relatively open-ended Danish goals for English language teaching are outlined. The second section briefly discusses the influential role of English in Denmark, and its status as a foreign or second language for most Danes. In the third section, Danish English instruction is analyzed in relation to ten specific language learning goals used in Britain to guide language teachers. It is concluded that the British guidelines reflect aspects of language instruction that are important and should be included in language teacher training and should inform daily pedagogical activity. It is recommended that Denmark re-examine the implications for language use and instruction of the important role played by English in that country. A 16-item bibliography is included. (MSE)
