Methodology in Language Training: An Anthology of Current Practice provides an overview of current approaches, issues, and practices in the teaching of English to speakers of other languages. This broad collection of articles illustrates the complexity underlying many of the practical planning and instructional activities involved in teaching English as an second or additional language. Topics include teaching English at elementary, secondary, and tertiary levels; teacher training; language testing; curriculum and materials development; the use of computers and other technology in teaching; as well as research on different aspects of second-language learning. Organized into 16 sections, the book contains 41 seminal articles by well-known teacher trainers and researchers. Also included are two sets of discussion questions - a pre-reading background set and a post-reading reflection set. This anthology serves as an important resource for a course in methodology.
