Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
Second Language Teaching, A view from the Right Side of the Brain: + offers a practical introduction to the use of neuroscience to teach second languages; + provides information on the relation between how the brain learns and how this can be used to construct classroom activities; + evaluates methods, syllabi, approaches, etc. from the perspective of brain functioning; + illustrates how teaching can unfold with actual examples in several languages. This volume is indispensable in courses designed for language teachers, curriculum planners, and applied linguistics.
