n Acta Germanica : German Studies in Africa - Higher education policy and foreign language teaching and learning in South Africa : Rahmenbedingungen

Volume 32, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0065-1273

At the centre of transformation policy is the White Paper for Higher Education Transformation (1997), and it is this document which is critically analysed and interpreted against the back-ground both of its origins, and of its position concerning the foreign language disciplines in a transformed Higher Education system.
