Book Information


Title: Exploring English Language Teaching
Subtitle: Language in Action
Written By: Graham Hall
Series Title: Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level
textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, primarily designed
for those entering postgraduate studies and language professionals returning
to academic study. The books take an innovative "practice to theory"
approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world
problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage
with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to
theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries,
a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section.

Exploring English Language Teaching provides a single volume introduction
to the field of ELT from an applied linguistics perspective. The book
addresses four central themes within English language teaching: ‘Classroom
interaction and management’; ‘Method, Postmethod and methodology’;
‘Learners’; and the ‘Institutional frameworks and social contexts’ of ELT. For
each, the book identifies key dilemmas and practices, examines how
teachers and other language teaching professionals might intervene and deal
with these concerns, and explores how such issues link to and inform applied
linguistic theory.

Exploring English Language Teaching is an indispensable textbook for
language teachers, and for post-graduate/graduate students and advanced
undergraduates studying in the areas of Applied Linguistics, Language
Teacher Education, and ELT/TESOL.
