Explorations in Applied Linguistics
Professor Henry Widdowson's collection of papers covers a range of theoretical and practical aspects of communicative language teaching.
In recent years there has been growing recognition of Professor Widdowson's major contribution to the study of communicative language teaching. This collection of papers, published together for the first time, shows the development of Widdowson's thinking. The papers, which range from theoretical discussion to classroom practice, are not intended to be prescriptive, nor do they try to provide conclusive arguments. Rather they invite the reader to explore ideas, to consider the practical implications of certain theoretical developments, and to examine his own assumptions more closely.
This volume bridges the gap between the theoretical and practical aspects of communicative language teaching, and Professor Widdowson's clear and original treatment of the subject will appeal to both teachers and applied linguists.
