Navigating in Foreign Language Texts has been written first and foremost for students in higher education, who are often confronted with the task of reading complex texts in a foreign language in order to acquire information and knowledge.

The main idea is that students - like all other human beings- are already, from their native language, familiar with basic principles for processing texts, and only need to be made aware of these principles in order to facilitate their comprehension of foreign language texts also.

The languages dealt with in the book comprise English, German, French and Spanish, all European (and indo-European) languages, which have a lot in common.

Another goal is therefore to teach students how to take advantage of features that are shared between their native and foreign language instead of focusing on differences.

The book includes an introduction to two e-learning programs: TeXtRay, which makes an -X-ray- of the text, and Nav iLire, which offers exercises in text navigation.

Both programs assist users in identifying linguistic means of creating coherence and meaning in texts, and in exploiting such means when it comes to reading and writing texts in the foreign language.
