Reviews

This book presents important information about quality in TESOL and teacher education. The concept of quality in education is not new, but ways to promote quality in situations related to language learning and teaching have not been given the necessary attention. In this book solid, research-based discussions are presented on diverse topics. Teaching contexts are often challenging and the suggestions on how to develop high-quality teaching in this book can be very helpful. The role of quality in ELT depends greatly on teacher education, and one section of the book deals with this aspect. The need for teachers to engage learners emotionally is also discussed, and the importance of training in emotional competence for teachers is stressed. I feel the book will be very useful. --Jane Arnold (retired), Full Professor of Language Teaching Methodology, University of Seville, Spain.
