Summary

Bringing applied linguistics theory to life in the language classroom - this resource explains clearly and easily for teachers and teacher trainers how to implement motivational theory in their classrooms for learners of all ages and abilities. While there has been a lot of discourse at an academic level about various approaches to motivation, there have, to date, been few resources for the language teacher / teacher-trainer with their finger on the scholarly pulse. This book aims to provide the link between theory and practice, with plenty of suggestions for innovative classroom exercises and assignments that take into account students with different levels of proficiency, different age groups, and different learning styles.
