Volume 48, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0259-9570



The fourth edition of by Marguerite Wessels, published by Oxford University Press Southern Africa (2014), is exactly what the title promises: it is very practical.

It is aimed at students in BEd courses and other teacher training diploma students as well as in-service teachers and is written in clear, precise and understandable language with explanations of specific terminology on the page where the terms occur for the first time. Even in the more theoretical sections that are underpinned by appropriate language teaching and learning theories, the practical focus is never lost. Each chapter is preceded by the learning outcome envisaged for that chapter, so that the reader knows what benefit to expect.
