David Nunan (born 11 October 1949 in Broken Hill, Australia) is an Australian linguist who has focused on the teaching of English. His ELT textbook series "Go For It!" is the largest selling textbook series in the world with sales exceeding 2.5 billion copies.

Nunan's academic and student textbooks are published by Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Anaheim University Press, Palgrave/Macmillan, and the EFL publishing division of Cengage Learning. Nunan is Vice-President for Academic Affairs at Anaheim University based in Anaheim, California. Nunan serves in a concurrent role as Dean of the Graduate School of Education and Professor of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at Anaheim University where he has worked since 1996.

In 2000, Nunan served as President of TESOL Inc., the world's largest language teaching association, and was the first person to serve as President from outside North America. Previously Nunan has served as Chair and Professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of Hong Kong and has been involved in the teaching of graduate programs for such institutions as the University of Hawaii, Monterey Institute for International Studies, Sophia University, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand and many others.

In 2002 Nunan received a congressional citation from the United States House of Representatives for his services to English language education through his pioneering work in online education through Anaheim University. In 2003 he was ranked the 7th most influential Australian in Asia by Business Review Weekly, and in 2005 he was named one of the top "50 Australians who Matter".

15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Chris Elvin on April 6, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book would almost certainly make my top ten list of EFL resource books. David Nunan very simply and clearly tells us what we know, how we know it, and what its implications for teaching are. SLTL presents both conceptual and empirical foundations to language teaching, deals with learners, language and language learning, and gives us practical advice on how to teach the four skills. Each chapter also contains many stimulating review questions, mind maps for the linearly challenged, and a coherent conclusion.

If I'd received this readable book before I wrote my Master dissertation, I'm sure I could've done much better.

This is nothing but another total waste of resources and ink! Where do they find these so-called "text book authors?" Besides, this floundering drivel is extremely outdated!
