An Introduction to Foreign Language Learning and Teaching presents an engaging, student-friendly guide to the fields of foreign language learning and teaching. Aimed at students beginning their study of these fields, the book provides essential background information and deals with language learning and teaching in a clear and comprehensible way. Attention is also given to practical matters related to classroom teaching.
The book covers both theoretical and practical aspects of the field and provides suggestions throughout for discussion and workshop activities. Although most of the examples used deal with English as a foreign language, the book offers a suitable introduction for teachers of any foreign language.
