The ideal book for those studying or practising language teaching or applied linguistics. Teaching materials play a crucial role in teaching-learning. When these take the form of a textbook it is essential that the textbook is carefully selected to meet both external requirements and the needs of the teachers. It is also important that teachers are able to mediate between the textbook and the learners, adapting and supplementing the book as necessary.

For teachers who prefer to prepare their own materials there are suggestions on systematising the process of materials development and on the use of learner-generated materials.
