It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: The Bilingual Reform
Subtitle: A Paradigm Shift in Foreign Language Teaching
Written By: Wolfgang Butzkamm
John A. W. Caldwell
Series Title: narr studienbücher

With this book, change has come to foreign language teaching. The mother
tongue taboo, which has been the perceived didactical correctness for so
many years and in so many countries, is swept away. At the same time, this
book combines theory with practice, advice and guidance to teachers. Since
the mother tongue issue touches upon all the major domains of teaching –
vocabulary, grammar, texts, communication, emotional aspects - a new
synthesis of theory and practice has been developed. An invaluable resource
both for thenovelty and diversity of the teaching techniques presented and
for the clarity of its writing.
