Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

This book provides a critical analysis of the materials used for learningEnglish around the world, considering both the teachers' and the learnersrequirements.

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

This comprehensive, critical analysis of materials in use around the worldwill be useful for academics researching materials development and appliedlinguistics and for students on post-graduate applied linguistics and ELTcourses.

"The articles in this volume discuss their subjects in a variety of ways,ranging from the anecdotal to the highly analytic and highlyquantitative.... serve as a motivator for teachers to depend less on whattheir textbooks tell them to do and to draw more on knowledge of theirstudents, of teaching, and of the world they live in" Scott Gardner, JALTJournal
