Title: English Language Learning Materials
Subtitle: A Critical Review
Edited By: Brian Tomlinson
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

This research collection presents a critical review of the materials used
for learning English around the world. The first section includes a
discussion of materials for specific learners and purposes, such as young
learners, self-study, academic writing and general proficiency. The second
section presents a detailed study of the materials used in Europe, Asia,
North America, South America, Africa and Australia, and critically
evaluates their effectiveness in the teaching of English to speakers of
other languages. Taking both the teacher's and the learner's needs into
consideration, the book makes a positive contribution to the future of
research in materials development, and has practical applications.

This comprehensive, critical analysis of materials in use around the world
will be useful for academics researching materials development and applied
linguistics and for students on post-graduate applied linguistics and ELT
courses.
