4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference for developing ELT teachers, 4 Nov 2009
This book explains all the key differences that learners of English as a second/foreign language experience as a result of differences within their own mother tongue - from pronunciation and intonation to grammatical differences, and false friends. Each chapter is comprehensive yet reasonably succinct. The book covers the full range of European languages as well as the main languages of Africa, Asia and the Far East. A book to dip into as necessary as difficulties arise for individual learners rather than a book to read from cover to cover, but a useful addition to any ELT practitioner's book collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Academically thorough..., 4 Nov 2009
A very detailed methodology book that includes all a trainee ELT teacher needs to know complete with academic references. Heavy going in the early chapters around theory and context but worth persevering. The DVD that accompanies it was interesting and useful.
