English language teaching in India: issues and innovations
Teaching any language requires more than a strong grasp of that language, but also a theoretical understanding of linguistics. English Language Teaching in India is designed to assist teaching English in India by taking a theoretical approach. This volume discusses important issues involving the interaction of first and second language acquisition theory; social and psychological aspects relating to learners; language pedagogy in formal settings; and the historical social and educational aspects of English in India. Written by teachers of English language or applied linguistics, the contributors also examine the educational consequences of the introduction of English in India; decolonization of English, and the creative use of English; the place of English in a multilingual society; and the needs and achievement levels of those learning English. English Language Teaching in India uses a nontechnical and easy- to-understand approach that makes it an indispensable tool for teachers, trainers, and researchers.
