About this book

In EFL contexts, an absence of chances to develop fluency in the language classroom can lead to marked limitations in English proficiency. This volume explores fluency development from a number of different perspectives, investigating measurements and classroom strategies for promoting its development.

Reviews

“The editors are to be commended for having engineered this interplay, and the evidence is plain to see that it was a worthwhile strategy. … they do an excellent job of revealing the range of perspectives on fluency and put these perspectives into a coherent framework within the wider field of language learning in general. The volume is more than the sum of its parts and constitutes essential reading for anyone involved with teaching in Asia.” (Michael Carroll, JALT Journal, Vol. 37 (2), November, 2015)
