Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts
This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
Each course will help the learner develop a command of the everyday written and spoken forms of a foreign language. No prior knowledge of the language is required. Each course includes: grammar and useful vocabulary; exercises for regular practice; a pronunciation guide; and a reference section. The Cassette Pack includes one paperback book and one or two 60-minute cassettes recorded by native speakers.
