This book gives you an up-to-date, broad understanding of ESOL and how it is taught and learnt. It also places ESOL in its wider social, political, and economic contexts and addresses many of the challenges teachers and learners currently face.show more

Review quote

'A much needed book, and the authors are to be congratulated. It really should be required reading for any new entrant to language and literacy teaching, and teacher educators should make a point of adding it to their core reading lists for Initial Teacher Education courses. It is likely to foster critical and reflective approaches - and this has to be something new teachers, and the profession generally, can only benefit from.' * Language Issues, Volume 20/1 * '...an excellent introduction to the world of ESOL for teachers coming into the profession from a traditional EFL background, highlighting for them the key features of the principles of ESOL and the varied characteristics of ESOL learners. It makes essential reading for all.' * REFLECT, issue 13, 2010 *show more
