ELT in Context Series

Andy Curtis, Series Editor


This ground-breaking series is aimed at TESOL professionals who are considering working in language teaching and learning organizations in various contexts and countries, and who need a clear, concise, and up-to-date account of what it is like to live and work there. Every context is different; the more we know about other contexts, the better we can understand our own. The authors in this series were asked to step back from the teaching and learning contexts that they were most familiar with, and look at those contexts with fresh eyes.
