Language learning materials development remains a surprisingly
under-supported aspect of language teaching. This book constitutes a
much-needed resource in the area, aiming to support and advance the craft
of materials design. The volume offers a snapshot of the contemporary
influences on language learning materials development from diverse
perspectives around the globe. These influences include the demands of
teaching ESOL in Britain and Ireland, the impact of Corpus Linguistics, the
needs of young learners and of diverse worldwide audiences, the development
of intercultural competence, as well as the integration of L2 acquisition
research. Contributors to the volume are drawn from a broad range of
teaching, research and materials development backgrounds. The book includes
some chapters based on papers given at the MATSDA (Materials Development
Association) 2008 conference.
