Editorial Reviews

"Given its wide-ranging and rich content, the volume should therefore prove to be an invaluable and authoritative resource of professional information on various aspects of language education. The writing is clear and fluid, thus facilitating easy understanding of the content. . the third edition of Second and Foreign Language Education is a comprehensive and valuable volume with substantial augmentations over the first edition that would certainly enhance the library of any linguist, university professor, language instructor and student of English."
