Review quote

'Provides a clear survey of the current state of research and offers practical teaching techniques. The book enables the teacher to be an informed practitioner. Verdict: **** a valuable book for diploma students.' British Council Network News 'Nation takes his 477 pages well, taking a truly useful approach to linking research to practice by providing teachers with concrete ideas with which to help learners build their second language vocabulary. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to include a clear vocabulary thread in their teaching, and to teacher educators who have an influence on the methodology and approaches of future teachers.'
