Abstract:

This volume brings together articles based on experimental and theoretical
research from teachers working in diverse teaching backgrounds with varying
experience, from research scholars to school teachers, from college and
university teachers in India to a British native teaching in China.

The contributions here provide a mix of global and local teaching scenarios,
addressing the need for diagnostic tests, developing need-based material,
using the mother tongue to ensure active participation of the masses, and
re-examining the language policies in Asian countries. The papers collected
here also explore the implementation of Task-based Language Teaching, the
integration of technology in developing language skills, and the use of games
and activities to engage the interest of low level learners while teaching
both literature and language, further linking them with their culture and
society.

The book offers a reflection of the changes that have taken place in the
teaching environment in the last two decades, with the introduction of
Communicative Language Teaching, and, as such, will be of immense help for
policy framers and educators in South-Asian countries and in countries where
English is a second or foreign language. 
Furthermore, the volume offers valuable information for researchers working in
the field of English Language Teaching (ELT), which can be used for reviewing
literature and exploring the directions in which the new teaching methods and
approaches are leading, and establishing the validity of research.
