Through the use of examples from poetry, prose and drama, this work offers a guide to the concepts and techniques in English language study. Each chapter: develops a particular topic through a series of practical tasks- provides points for further discussion- includes project work for use individually, or as part of a group- and contains a glossary of technical terms and suggestions for follow-up activities. By developing practical activities designed for the study of English language, this work goes way beyond pure linguistic description, and should be a useful aid for the beginner student of the English language. This book also contains a teachers appendix which offers advice on the design and implementation of workshop activities on language.
