Review quote

'The Cambridge Guide is to be welcomed and used wisely by all in the field. My graduate courses in TESOL will be considerably enhanced by this book. This is a must for your bookshelf.' ESL Magazine, Brazil 'Most chapters are reader-friendly, neither patronisingly simple nor pretentiously complicated, offering ideas to both the uninitiated and the experienced. By trying to forge links between theory and practice, research and classroom teaching, this volume does good service to the profession.' ELT Journal
