The context of modern languages teaching. It is easy to argue that modern language teaching in English-speaking countries is in crisis. In England, the supply of advanced-level linguists has dwindled rapidly since the s, university language departments have closed and less than half of all secondary students take a language at GCSE (Tinsley and Doležal, ). Designed for all trainee and newly qualified teachers, teacher trainers and mentors, this volume provides a contemporary handbook for the teaching of modern foreign languages, covering Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 in line with current DfEE and TTA guidelines.

Many teachers consider the use of literature in language teaching as an interesting and worthy concern (Sage ). In this paper, why a language teacher should use literary texts in the language classroom, what sort of literature language teachers should use with language learners, literature and the teaching of language skills, and benefits. Founded in by teachers and scholars, the Modern Language Association (MLA) promotes the study and teaching of language and literature.

In addition, her book also contains “best of class” reviews on the different tools available online today. Inundated with sites, courses, programs, apps and books that all claim to help teach a language, she wades through the muck and gives her stamp of approval on those worthy few that truly deliver on their promises. Chapter 1: What is language? 2 Like most modern studies of linguistics, this book is descriptive rather than prescriptive. It is not within the scope of the book to judge which of the following sentences is the more correct: A. I can't get no satisfaction. B. I can't get any satisfaction.
