--Denise Murray, Macquarie University, Australia
"This book offers a critical perspective of the teaching and assessment of the four language skills. It is research-informed and inspiring as it focuses on a variety of topics and tasks to offer an understanding of how reading, writing, listening and speaking can be taught and learned effectively. It is a useful resource, with an accessible treatment of theoretical contents and a well-balance combination of theory, practical illustration and pedagogical insights into the teaching/learning of the four language skills."
--Carmen Perez-Llantada, University of Zaragoza, Spain
""...[T]this volume is written in a clear and readable-friendly style, providing an accessible resource for pre-service and in-service teachers keen on the teaching of the four language skils within EAP....[T]his book captures a wide range of topics and synthesizes them from various sources, focusing on the dimensions of pedagogical principles, instructional activities and assessment options for L2 teaching....In view of this, we strongly recommend it as an inspirational resource book for EAP and L2 teachers, curriculum designers as well as graduate students who have research and professional interests in the field of ESL teaching in academic contexts."
--Journal of English for Academic Purposes 37 (2019) pp. 170 -172
"Overall, this book offers a professional understanding of language skills teaching and development in the EAP context. The sections will not only inform the experience-based actions undertaken by English teachers, but enlighten the theoretical considerations involving the linkage among the teacher's profession, instructional methods, academic contexts, and students' individual characteristics."
