Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Useful reading for all teacher trainers/educators.' - Teacher Trainer

'Clearly written and coherent...A ready readership might include language teachers in training, postgraduate students and classroom researchers interested in language classroom discourse. This book would also make instructive reading for non-experts charged with inspecting L2 classrooms, a group growing in number.' - Educational Review
