Language is a dynamic process, the hallmarks of which are self-organisation, self-similarity and chaotic determination. Instead of seeking simple solutions to complex problems, teachers and syllabus designers should be reaching out beyond existing course books and methodologies to embrace the lessons learned by other scientific disciplines. The fractal approach envisages a new paradigm of language based on forms found in nature and indicates a goal-oriented method of developing teaching materials incorporating a holistic view of language acquisition. This book outlines the theory, presents guidelines for implementing it in the classroom and gives practical examples of the fractal approach in action. With this approach, Claypole 'steps away from ELT convention and offers a perspective from a very different world... His contribution to the field is definitely worth reading.' - Evan Frendo
