Product description

This easy-to-read book groups methods according to what they have in common, even if separated in time. At the same time, it rehabilitates some lost or forgotten methods, with a view to challenging current orthodoxies, especially with regard to such topics as translation, rote learning, authenticity, and communication. In doing this it aims to unpack, not just the history of methods, but the beliefs that underpin them and the benefits that still might possibly accrue from experimenting with them. Through its inclusion of interesting characters, intriguing anecdotes, and often bizarre techniques, the material is absorbing and engaging.

Key features

  • Tips are numbered and organised into clear sections, helping teachers quickly and easily navigate the content.
  • References and a further reading list support teachers to find more information on the topics covered.
  • Methods are grouped by what they have in common and to dispel the view that methods ‘die’ and no longer have anything to offer.
