Discourse and Context in Language Teaching : A Guide for Language Teachers Paperback

Part of the Cambridge Language Teaching Library series

Description

Discourse and Context in Language Teaching: A Guide for Language Teachers is part of the Cambridge Handbooks for Language for Language Teachers series.

This book recommends that language teachers incorporate an awareness of discourse and pragmatics in their teaching if they wish to implement a communicative approach in their classrooms.

After two introductory chapters on discourse and pragmatics, the authors show how a discourse perspective can enhance the teaching of traditional areas of linguistic knowledge and the teaching of language processing skills.

This awareness of discourse is then carried over to curriculum development, assessment, and classroom research.

With discussion questions and activities at the end of each chapter, this book can be used in methods courses or in-service training programs.
