Excellent guide to language issues for students learning ESL,
This review is from: Learner English: A Teacher's Guide to Interference and Other Problems (2nd Edition) (Cambridge Handbooks for Language Teachers) (Paperback)
The book is split into various native language sections. Within each of these there is an analysis of that language form and how it differs from English. Various difficulties peculiar to each language are then given in reference to learning English. An invaluable guide especially when teaching students where the teacher has no knowledge of their mother tongue.
