Reviews

“This book is likely to inspire both novice and more experienced researchers, and it would make a good choice of core reading in both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in ELT curriculum or materials development and analysis … . this volume is to be welcomed by applied linguists with a range of interests, including classroom pedagogy, semiotics, literacy development, teacher education, and language teaching materials.” (Denise Santos, Applied Linguistics, Vol. 37 (1), February, 2016)
