Working with Texts in the EFL Classroom

A rich and engaging resource for enhancing the quality of teaching, this book is an essential professional companion for teachers of English as a foreign language. Major strengths are the infusion of a rigorous, well-researched basis in systemic functional linguistics into a framework of highly engaging, authentic learning experiences. These feature systematic, meaningful language teaching through interaction encounters in contexts of shopping, personal health care and other practical transactions, as well as delightful opportunities for enjoyment with literary narratives and movie reviews.

 

Un atractivo y rico recurso para fortalecer  la calidad de la enseñanza y un compañero esencial para la actividad profesional del profesor de inglés como lengua extranjera. Entre las fortalezas de esta obra, se destaca la capacidad de integrar un marco sistémico funcional riguroso y sólidamente fundado con un conjunto de experiencias de enseñanza - aprendizaje auténticas y verdaderamente motivadoras. Estas actividades promueven de manera sistemática y significativa la enseñanza por medio de interacciones de compra y venta, salud personal y otras transacciones cotidianas, junto con encantadoras oportunidades para disfrutar narraciones literarias y reseñas de películas.
