Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Rules, Patterns and Words
Subtitle: Grammar and Lexis in English Language Teaching
Written By: Dave Willis
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521829240
Series Title: Cambridge Language Teaching Library
Description:

Grammar is central to language pedagogy and teachers need a clear description of what constitutes grammar and how it can best be taught in the English language classroom. This book illustrates a new way of describing the grammar of spoken and written English. In an accessible style, the author demonstrates how lexical phrases, frames and patterns provide a link between grammar and vocabulary. He also discusses how the different aspects of the language require different learning processes and different teaching techniques. These processes and techniques are contextualised within a task-based approach to teaching and learning. Numerous interactive tasks are provided to guide readers and over forty examples of teaching exercises are included to illustrate techniques which can be applied in the classroom immediately.
