Vivian Cook aims to provide a book which is not too academic, and which is relevant to the classroom teacher; he has succeeded admirably. And although intended for teachers, this book should also prove interesting to anyone who has ever themselves attempted to learn a foreign language.
...a very valuable text for foreign language teachers and those in training and should feature...on reading lists of initial teacher education courses.
