Format: Paperback
I find Lewis's book a breath of fresh air! It was really an eye-opener for me, not only it confirmed my long held intuitive beliefs, but it formulated and explained them in the clearest way possible. I would like to very strongly recommend this book to all the teachers of English as a second language. Especially for those who are stuck in their stale and ineffective teaching techniques and do not see the light at the end of a tunnel. That was the case with me, but now I do see that light. It is the Lexical Approach to theaching ESL!...

Lewis (no relation) challenges the orthodox methods of teaching lexis, emphasising the need for learners to understand and utilise vocabulary in lexical chunks, as opposed to discrete words translated - usually inadequately - from L1 to L2. The approach requires a slight change in teaching methods to produce a major shift in the quality of language acquisition.

Well written and certainly gets you thinking. Maybe it's time to incorporate some of his ideas into my teaching.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed. 24 July 2011
By Sara Magellan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was the exact one that I expected. When I bought the sellers review said the book was in very good shape, but when it arrived it was all scribbled on. I understand this is an expensive book, and if the seller had told me it was not so good probably I would've bought it anyways. Guess I was disappointed when I opened it up and it had it's cover bend and all the scribbling and pink highlight that I personally don't like. It won't keep me from buying used books, because most of them, when announced as good or very good, actually are.
