Description

This edited volume brings together several original studies that critically examine the quantitative and qualitative effects of service-learning (SL) on foreign and second learning, and its impact on communities, learners, pre-service teacher candidates, and faculty-researchers.

The book focuses on two key aspects: innovative SL methodologies that seek to develop linguistic and cultural competencies and empirical investigations on the SL effects on all stakeholders.

The analysis presented provides a unique insight into the challenges and future directions of SL research, pedagogical assessment, and community impact.
