Word for Word examines the social, economic and political impact of Spanish and English in the world today. 


The book explores a broad range of issues, from language policy and its influence on the state of language learning in schools, and the language dimensions of student mobility in Europe and beyond; to the role of English and Spanish in driving business and economic growth; and the shifts and changes in Spanish and English as dominant global languages. 

Each language is considered separately, in contact with each other,and then set in a broader socio-economic and political context.
