Richards explains how effective language teaching involves a network of interactions between curriculum, methodology, teachers, learners, instructional materials. Each chapter discusses and examines the theoretical and practical dimensions of a central issue in language teaching. Topics covered include the nature of effective teaching, self-monitoring in teacher development, language and content, and teaching listening, speaking, reading and writing. Richards presents key issues in an accessible and highly readable style, and shows how teachers and teachers-in-training can be involved in the investigation of classroom teaching and learning. The emphasis is not on prescriptions but rather on developing effective teaching through understanding the various factors that interact in second language learning and in the second language classroom.

Industry Reviews

"...gives needed suggestions for this often-neglected aspect of ESL instruction and is a worthy contribution to the field of applied linguistics." TESOL Quarterly "...an inspiring book that calls on language teachers to reflect on their work, monitor themselves...and grow by analysing their failures, never standing still, but exploring in interaction with their students how they can best facilitate language learning." EFL Gazette
