Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘I just have to tell you how much I am enjoying Exloring Classroom Discourse. It's accessible, comprehensive and generally a lovely, lovely book. One of the best books I've read for a long time.’ - Joan Cutting, University of Edinburgh, UK

"...'Exploring Classroom Discourse' has much to offer both pre- and in-service teachers, as well as researchers into classroom discourse, and postgraduate students in various areas of applied linguistics. It is notable for clarity of expression, and distils material from a wide range of academic studies into a brew which should prove more than palatable for both teachers and teacher educators."

In System, Brian Poole, English Language Institute of Singapore

"This text speaks powerfully to both teacher educators and teachersin-training, not only guiding them through classroom discourse exploration, but reminding them every step of the way why such investigation is essential." - Discourse Studies
