Series statement
International perspectives on English language teaching
Summary expansion
Current interest in ELT materials is driven by local concerns in an era where globalization, global English, technological advances and concomitant critical factors are having a significant impact on educational policy, curriculum provision, language pedagogy and materials use. Despite changing methodologies and technological developments, materials remain at the heart of language teaching. This book brings together different perspectives on ELT materials from a range of international contexts and a variety of educational settings. All the chapters are underpinned by sound theoretical principles while addressing practical concerns and debates in materials design and use. The focus throughout is on how the local experience of the individual authors, who are practitioners and educators as well as researchers, is relevant to a global audience of TESOL professionals
