This updated edition is a practical reference guide which compares the relevant features of a student's own language with English, helping teachers to predict and understand the problems their students have. Learner English has chapters focusing on major problems of pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and other errors as well as new chapters covering Korean, Malay/Indonesian and Polish language backgrounds.
'Serves its purpose admirably - can hardly be faulted. Learner English is yet another goodie for every well-equipped language school.' TEFL Farm 'This book ought to be read by all teachers of English but especially those who work with multi-lingual classes where it is a constant challenge to discover the fundamental reasons behind students' errors.'
