About this book

This book offers a unique perspective on creativity in an educational environment where there is a relative dearth of literature on this subject.

This innovative volume is sure to become a crucial reference point for teachers and practitioners of language teaching, and anyone interested in the ways in which creativity can be channelled into the teaching and learning process.
