'This volume links the teaching of English to the development of autonomous individuals, who prize debate, negotiation and interaction, and who will ultimately be able to build global communities of like-minded English speakers around the world. Readers will find in this collection of excellent papers some of the classic milestones of the field of ELT.' - Claire Kramsch, Berkeley, California

'Experienced English language instructors seeking to deepen their knowledge and abilities will find this series forms a coherent basis to develop their understandings of current trends, sociocultural diversity, and topical interests in teaching English as a second or foreign language around the world. All three volumes provide ample flexibility for discussion, interpretation and adaptation in local settings.' - Alister Cumming, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto

'The strong representation of the seminal Anglo-Australian development of the European functional tradition in the study of language and language education makes this a refreshingly bracing series, which should be widely used in teacher education for English language teaching.' - Euan Reid, Institute of Education, University of London

'In a principled and accessible manner, these three volumes bring together major writings on essential topics in the study of English language teaching. They provide broad coverage of current thinking and debate on major issues, and an invaluable resource for the contemporary postgraduate student.' - Guy Cook, Professor of Applied Linguistics, University of Reading

'Candlin and Mercer's reader provides key insights into contemporary knowledge of second language learning, the exploitation of this knowledge in classroom action, and subsequent assessment and analysis. By emphasising the social context of these three processes, and the relationship between them, the book provides a rewarding introduction to the interaction between theory, research and professional practice which lies at the heart of applied linguistics.' - Guy Cook, Professor of Applied Linguistics, University of Reading

'This three-part series offers a map to ELT research and represents the best that ELT, as an Anglo-Saxon institution, has developed over the last 30 years for the teaching of English around the world... Readers will find in this series the Who's Who guide to this dynamic and expanding community.' - Clare Kramsch, Berkeley, California

'This series provides a collection of essential readings which will not only provide the TEFL/TESOL student and teacher with access to the most up-to-date thinking and approaches to the subject but will give any person interested in the subject an overview of the phenomenon of the use and usage of English in the modern world. Perhaps more importantly, this series will be crucial to those students who do not have available to them articles that provide both a wide spectrum of information and the necessary analytical tools to investigate the language further.' - Joseph A. Foley, Southeast Asia Ministers of Education Organisation, Regional Language Centre, Singapore
