From the teaching of grammar to the teaching of literature; from classroom teaching to independent learning; from role-playing to CAL - few books on teaching languages cover such a wide field. In this book teaching experience and research from practitioners in four European countries throw new light on old problems faced every day, while others reveal innovative teaching methods and new insights into how teachers and learners interact. Sections include:
*language learning strategies and computer-assisted language learning
*facilitating individual progress through autonomous learning
*how to bring a foreign country alive in the classroom
*de-mythologising grammar teaching
*how different types of dictionaries can make valuable contributions to language teaching
*teaching and using idiomatic phrases.
