Whether the context is English being learned as a second language in a Swedish secondary school, French being learned as a foreign language in an English state school, or Urdu being maintained as a home language in any number of European cities, this very practical book shows ways in which students can learn languages most effectively through exploring, applying and developing a variety of strategies.
It explains how teachers can train pupils in those strategies, as well as how they can adapt their teaching to derive the greatest benefit from each strategy.
The presentation includes numerous exercises, questions and prompts for reflection, and each theoretical point is supported by a fully explained example. The main focus is on secondary education, but the book will also be helpful in the primary and adult sectors.
