This much-needed volume offers focused approaches and frameworks of designing or developing English materials in both EFL and ESL contexts. Informed by current empirical, theoretical, and practical grounds, the text treats key issues in English language teaching (ELT) materials design or development and sample ELT materials in which the justifications for such materials design or development are also discussed. Through the sample teaching materials included in the text, the readers can see underlying principles or frameworks of how those materials are designed or developed. In other words, this volume is a user-friendly guide to materials design or development for language teachers/practitioners in that theoretical or empirical considerations are balanced with practical materials.
Thus, The LINCOM Guide to Materials Design in ELT is a valuable collection not only for language teachers/practitioners, but also for language materials writers and developers, graduate students majoring in TESOL, pre-service teachers, and teacher educators and trainers who teach or engage in ELT materials design or development on secondary school, college, and university levels.
