2015 (English)In: Language in Uniform: Language Analysis and Training for Defence and Policing Purposes / [ed] Helen de Silva Joyce, Elizabeth A. Thomson, Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2015, 1, p. 150-177Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses the challenges of facilitating the development of advanced learners of English in the Scandinavian military context. It focuses on meaningful interaction, which relates to military students’ professional language needs and the immediate context of their learning in university programs. These programs include content instruction and military exercises in English on topics relevant to war studies within a Masters degree. The paper describes a series of lessons taught at the Swedish National Defence College that bring together two program components, namely the students need to understand the military content of their subjects in English and their professional English language workplace requirements. It describes how the author used reading comprehension and the genre of presentation to develop a repertoire of questioning strategies for application in the defence workplace.
