Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This resource text is designed primarily as a textbook for a preservice TESL/TEFL methods course, but is also useful as a reference and guide for practicing teachers. Forty specialists contribute theoretical background and practical applications for deciding which methods, materials and resources to use in the ESL/EFL classroom. The third edition includes revisions of 16 chapters, and complete rewrites of ten chapters, from the second edition. Ten new chapters have been added, on such topics as communicative language teaching; syllabus design; developing children's listening and speaking skills; cognitive approaches to grammar instruction; bilingual language learning; the non-native speaker as language teacher; cross-cultural communication; action research, teacher research and classroom research; and reflective teaching. A list of useful websites is included at the end of most chapters. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
