This module explores the purposes of and methods for teaching second language writing. Engaging and accessible, Teaching Second Language Writing is organized into three sections that mainly focus on activities, approaches and real-life writing tasks and genres that are the most applicable and useful for the language teaching classroom.
The Routledge E-Book Modules on Contemporary Language Teaching introduce students to the major areas of second language instruction through jargon-free style and explain concepts as they are introduced thus facilitating comprehension for those with little or no background.
