4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ellen Craig on December 10, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This is an outstanding resource book for anyone interested in the education of young second language learners. Whether you are a mainstream teacher, an administrator or even a seasoned ESL teacher, this book will prove to be invaluable. The author not only presents some of the latest research in the field of linguistics, but also successfully merges theory with classroom practice. Additionally, she poignantly addresses the needs of second language learners in a sensitive and informative manner. As a current ESL teacher, I am particularly impressed with the myriad of fresh and innovative lessons offered in the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to enrich their current ESL instruction or gain new perspectives on young second language learners.
