This newly revised second edition looks at ways in which teachers can develop children's abilities in speaking and listening, as required by the National Curriculum. The authors discuss the links between language and learning; offer case studies and suggestions for classroom practice; and provide stimulating activities to help pupils to become more articulate, coherent and effective in standard English.

The book is a suitable text for students taking primary initial teacher training courses. It will also be welcomed as a practical handbook for primary teachers.


"Reviews from the first edition: This is the clearest, single volume on this aspect of English in years and well worth a read." -- Junior Education

"There are many practical activities given for both working with children and for developing ideas with teaching colleagues, and theoretical underpinning for this, based on research, is made clear." -- Language Matters
