Resumen

LORENZO, Francisco. Communication linguistics: The genre-based multiligual curriculum. Rev. signos [online]. 2010, vol.43, n.74, pp.391-410. ISSN 0718-0934.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-09342010000500001.

With the demise of formalism in linguistics, education of mother tongue and foreign language needs revising. Formal trends fall short of the two major challenges in education today: making students fit to operate in a multilingual world and making them proficient for using language -both L1 and L2- in society, that is, having a full grasp of academic and professional genres. This article makes an actual proposal of curriculum innovation that takes genres -with a nod to the systemic functional theory behind it- as the ultimate unit in language programming and that is being embraced in some parts of Europe under the label: 'integrated language curriculum'. A historical review, a cognitive account based on language information processing, and some structure for classroom implementation are also considered.

Palabras clave : Language across the curriculum; genres in language education; content and language integrated learning; bilingualism; multilingualism.
