Abstract:

Key Features
A collection of personal theories specific to language teaching
mentoring developed to improve the quality of education offered to
student teachers. Written by a higher education tutor, who has
personal and professional interest in understanding and improving
school-based mentoring for student teachers

Description 
This book investigates a number of case studies of language mentoring
in action with a view to prompting readers to reflect upon their own

illuminate general principles and issues.
