Reviews

'The book provides an excellent, accessible general introduction to core content areas and issues for students entering MA TESOL programs. It will be of great assistance to students in making sense of what can be a fairly bewildering span of theoretical perspectives, and it will also allow academic teaching staff to readily situate the particular orientations they wish to explore in more depth. It is a welcomed innovation in the professional development literature in the TESOL field.'- Susan Hood, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia.
